Hello there everyone on this final day of 2010. There is a plethora of messages all over the place honoring the end of the year, and celebrating the start of a new one. It's no different here.
2010 has proven to be an outstanding year here at Full Spectrum Leadership. The four founders, who frankly can choose to do anything with their lives that they like, elected to build a ten year plan that for the community that will touch thousands. The enterprise launches into the official plan tomorrow and I have to say that we are indeed excited.
In thinking about a simple message that can help us wrap up the year, and launch us officially into 2011, the choices were rich and varied, but simple won out. It's Wake Up Everybody!
John Legend and Roots, with Melanie Fiona and Common, sing us into the message in an outstanding way. This 2010 remake of the 1975 classic R&B song has a message which is every bit as relevant today. As the song says, "The world has changed so very much from what it used to be...The world won't get no better. We gotta change it. Just you and me."
So let's wake up together and work to be the change we wish to see in the world. It's never too late.
We all wish you a very safe, happy and prosperous New Year
I appreciate you all.
