The Strategic Optimist’s Manifesto (excerpt from A Future So Bright)

Our brighter future is going to require both hope and strategy together

With all the change we face that is threatening or at least alarming, we owe it to ourselves and to the generations still ahead of us to look for the brightest possible outcomes, and work diligently toward them
Nothing short of our full commitment to an optimistic view will do.

Envision bold new ways forward
And then commit to those bold ideas.

And we do want to move “forward”

But optimism alone won’t bring about the best outcomes.
Optimism needs a strategy
And hope needs action.
