How The Mighty Fall…

Published on February 25th, 2011

I was really challenged by this book from Jim Collins.  His basic assertion is that decline can be avoided, detected, and reversed.  Hope can even be found in the middle of decline.  Jim writes from a business perspective, but it would be easy to apply many of these thoughts not only to an orginization, but also to your personal life.  Here’s my favorite quote.

“But if you have a clear and inspired purpose built upon solid core values, then the noble course may be to fight on, to reverse decline, and to try to rekindle greatness.  The point of the struggle is not just to survive, but to build an enterprise that makes such a distinctive impact on the world it touches, and does so with such superior performance, that would leave a gaping hole – a hole that could not be easily filled by any other institution – if it ceased to exist.”

I want to be part of that kind of movement!  Distinctive impact.
