Thought on Business: The importance of perspective

I thought to start a short series of Thoughts on Business that employ graphic images and some of my more favorite quotes.

We do a lot of corporate team building and engage a lot of leadership into pretty good discussions about issues and opportunities. So, the idea is to pop up a few of the key quotes into easily remembered graphic images.

This one is about the need for perspective and change:
