Could'nt agree more. Hope is the driver for all endeavors.

I read this post while watching 'The Christmas Choir' on Hallmark in which a young man gives hope to few homeless people of making some money for Christmas by singing as a choir and they become very successful.

Also agree with the fact that Hope is where things begin and then it requires belief and due diligence to take it to next level!!

Nice post!!

Thanks, Sumit...

Yes, hope certainly is a powerful enabler of great things.

Thanks again for the comment. I HOPE to hear from you again...


Hi Kent,

Nice post, and I agree with the sentiment. I'm learning that it is important to try and look on the bright side of things.

I'm also trying to focus more on the positive for 2009, in spite of my fondness for the straight-talk of well known "gloom and doom" prognosticators.

I noticed that you and Howard Lindzon have both stressed the "positivity" theme in your early 2009 posts, so I feel like I'm in pretty good company here.

I hope that we all try to make things a little better for each other in the years to come!


it's back to basics, and hope is a great place to start. thanks for the reminder, Kent.

And I hope you don't mind a shameless blog plug: http://quirkyeconomy.wordpress.com

Happy New Year!
