059: Practical idealism

by | Oct 29, 2019

Are idealists merely dreamers, hoping for pie in the sky? Do hardnosed pragmatists always have to win out with their winner-take-all attitude?

In this installment of The Spirit of Leading podcast I take the position that idealism has a very practical application. Idealism applies to all aspects of our life in which we have a vision of the perfect state. I also believe our idealism is an important element of our moral and ethical fabric.

Idealists populate every generation. Dreamers are never alone, but sometimes their dreams are scoffed at by those who have something to lose if those dreams come true.
