Featured Book:
The Clock of the Long Now: Time and Responsibility, by Stewart Brand
On the subject of creating the future of our communities, we wanted to share one of our favorite books. We have read The Clock of the Long Now so many times, its spine is cracked, its pages dog-eared, its words highlighted and underlined. A very easy read, inspiring, thought-provoking - this book changed us when we read it, and we hope it does the same for you!

What They're Saying

Every month, hundreds of new subscribers sign up for our newsletter. Here's one of our favorite comments this month:

"I want to thank you for the article in your last newsletter, Creating a Culture of Possibility. Your article spoke to our employees about customer service and positive communications in simple, direct language, giving the best reasons and examples why ‘no’ holds organizations back, while ‘yes’ can lead to success. Thank you!" - Susan Smith, Rome Memorial Hospital

And thank you, Susan!
