Board members’ terms are four years…the ramifications of our decisions reverberate for generations.
Against that backdrop, some wise & weighty words from Seth Godin:
“A bad decision isn’t only bad because we’re uninformed or dumb. It can be bad because we are swayed by short-term comfort and ignore long-term implications. A bad decision feels good in the short run, the heartfelt decision of someone who means well. But there’s a gap when we get to the long run.”
