Life as it should be (has America lost its ability to hope?)

“Too much sanity may be madness. And maddest of all, to see life as it is, and not as it should be!”

To us at Quixote Group, this quote is the heart and soul of the Quixote story – to see things as they should be. This is what drives us, what brings us energy, and inspires the way we think about our clients’ business.

While we firmly believe that hope is not a strategy, we do wonder why it seems that there are those who discount the inspirational and motivational power that hope brings. Some deride the crowds that one of the presidential candidates is able to draw, preferring to criticize what they call his “celebrity”. But what we see are the crowds filled with people inspired by a hopeful message and an uplifting vision for the future – yes, it is seeing life as it should be for all Americans.

Has America lost its ability to hope? Have we lost the ability to dream big, as Juno would say? Have we lost the willingness to see life as it should be – and believe that there are those among us with the courage and conviction to turn the dreams into reality?

I hope not.
