We can imagine all sorts of things about the future. However, they will only exist if manifest action now. Otherwise, it’s just a thought.
We go to conferences, events, networking meetings and other gatherings.
Often the agenda is to sell, gather contacts, make a return on investment. It’s all about the Dollars and Cents.
What if the agenda was to listen, evaluate and learn?
Perhaps the short term bucks would be less, but longer term the return could be a great deal higher.
Play the long game and adjust the agenda.
