    Wonderful epiphany. Insightful: Every cast is an opportunity filled with promise and potential…this time I’ll catch the big one. A single cast that didn’t return a fish wasn’t a failure. It simply meant you needed to try again (and again and again for me!). Consider how this optimistic attitude could improve many workplaces if leaders allowed room for the learnings that come with failure.

      Cherry – thanks much! Business just has to make room (in my humble opinion!) for people to try things and have unsuccessful outcomes. That’s what teachable moments are for,

    Agree with Cherry – optimistic leadership is infectious.

    Really like the ‘everyone’s prize’ idea. It’s a powerful image. Permission to use it, pleas?

      Gerardine – thanks much for your kind words. Please do use the “everyone’s prize” idea and spread the word!

    Rich with insight and wisdom as always Jane! I think I will go cast a few extra lines today 🙂 You just never know when the big one will bite!

      Susan – honored by your kind words! I think you’ve mastered the art of catching the big one!
