The April Fool - The April Thinker



Can someone help me understand this contradiction?


The other day I was working with a senior leadership team translating their business strategy to what we call Blue Cards - these are simple translations of the leaderships strategic intent.
We crafted a card about the need for growth - defined a highly motivating  narrative, set strategic exclusions and even tactical constraints.  In particular we made it clear that we were not interested in ideas that generated less than $10 Million (it was a very large company).

Where are you? Where are you going?

Thomas L Friedman in today's New York Times August 24, 2014 writes that there is a difference between “Freedom from” and “Freedom to.”
