With gratitude for the timeless work of Charles Schulz, our story today begins with Lucy bravely approaching Charlie Brown with an idea for improving their baseball team.
She's pretty excited about the possibilities present in her idea, but Charlie Brown is not...how shall we say...receptive to the proposed change.
This sends Lucy back into the outfield where she makes a life decision.
Truth is...I've got an observation and a question.
Observation: "That's what everyone else is doing" does not necessarily make an idea great.
Question: How many great ideas have never seen the light of day because of fear of someone's gut-level/knee-jerk negative reaction?
