Poetry Thursday

Once again, my poem is prose.

Inscription on a church in Sussex, England, 1730:

"A vision without a task is but a dream; a task without a vision is drudgery; a vision with a task is the hope of the world."

Every leader is the better leader for understanding this principle: give your people a task to do and an over-riding reason to do it. Either without the other equals frustration and mediocrity. That's my opinion!
