I think that there are not enough dreamers in corporate offices today. I really can’t say if this is the reality around the world. But this is certainly the sentiment that I get where I am. I think too many people underestimate the dreamer. They think we are too unrealistic, and not serious enough. They think that since they can crunch numbers, that they are more grounded than we are. Well truthfully, they are. But then again, being grounded has never been on the dashboard of the dreamer. The higher we float off the ground, the better. And this is an ecstasy that the monkey suit can never even begin to imagine.
And because they don’t feel, they don’t understand. Because they don’t understand, they don’t appreciate. Because they don’t appreciate, they disregard the dreamer’s vision as just another delusion. As an unproductive fantasy. An ambition that is unrealistically beyond the grasp of the human hand. They fail however to see, that it is well within the human imagination. And they forget that all the greatest ideas in human history always began in the most sensational crevices of the human imagination.
I think that there are not enough dreamers in corporate offices today. And probably what is more disturbing, is that the corporate world has evolved in such a way, that it has become dreamer-unfriendly. That in recruiting young talents to join a workforce, the ability to dream is not gauged, is not required, and sometimes, is not even encouraged. And I am worried about what this says about the corporate world today.
