What’s the Endgame?

Consider for a moment: what does each party really want?

Undoing the other guys’ work, only more so, is not really a strategy for governance.

And, administration after administration, it’s a recipe for terrible whipsawing.

As the investor Graham Duncan has written:

In life and business, “approach” goals are much more effective than “avoidance” goals. It’s important to give yourself enough time to build a positive vision of a future fund instead of simply reacting against someone else’s vision or your own prior frustrations.

The future belongs to leaders who can communicate “approach” goals that are bold enough to inspire, specific enough to achieve, and uplifting enough to be proud of.

When’s the last time you heard one of those, or saw it realized?
