Good morning Tash Appreciators,
As has become customary at this time of year, this week’s TF is the first part of an end-of-season double-edition.
The end of this season prompted me to look at TF editions from this time last year. It turns out that the second last edition of 2012/13 was titled “what’s next?” – a question which is now a key element of each edition.
I can now report that the question “what’s next?” has become one which many Appreciators ask themselves on a regular basis. I’ve had messages from folk who are making bold decisions relating to their career in which they say they must “dare greatly” and that they feel they are standing on a ledge looking out over the world without thinking about the empty space beneath them.
That’s not because they’ve read TF and experienced some kind of epiphany. I think it’s because they see that being positive and ambitious encourages those around them to do the same. It’s a virtuous cycle which leads to more people being successful and which also provides a support network for those times when things don’t quite go as well as we’d hoped.
The title of this week’s TF is “In your dreams…” You can say those three words in different ways. One way of saying them is the approach which is perhaps more likely to be used by someone who doesn’t have a positive attitude. They would say it dismissively and sarcastically.
The other way is one which I will explain next week – where having a dream, or a vision, or ambition, is the only way to get anything extraordinary done.
In the meantime, I will leave you with a Tash who dared greatly, who did some pretty extraordinary stuff, but who is now in need in a bit of support. His team has dominated European and world football since 2008 but their time has come to an end after being knocked out of the World Cup in the first round. Don’t worry Vincente Del Bosque, we still appreciate you. How couldn’t we appreciate a man with a Tash this good:
Have a great weekend folks!
