"There are people who put their dreams in a little box and say, 'Yes, I've got dreams, of course, I've got dreams.' Then they put the box away and bring it out once in a while to look at it, and yep, they're still there.  These are great dreams but they never even get out of the box.  It takes an uncommon amount of guts to put your dreams on the line, to hold them up and say, 'How good or bad am I?' That's where courage comes in."

Dreams Buried on the Frontlines

After the International Society for Performance Improvement Europe Middle East Africa (ISPI/EMEA) conference in Istanbul in October 2015, I took a tour to Troy. We started out when it was still dark in Istanbul.  I had taken a taxi from the Police Training Center, where I was staying to a hostel on a tiny dank street in the old town to wait for the mini-bus.  An inebriated Turk kindly made me a cup of coffee as I waited outside in the dark and as he and another Turk spoke in broken English…
