In 1910, iconic architect and planner Daniel Burnham said:
“Make no little plans; they have no magic to stir men’s blood and probably themselves will not be realized. Make big plans; aim high in hope and work, remembering that a noble, logical diagram once recorded will not die, but long after we are gone be a living thing, asserting itself with ever-growing insistence.”
Great leaders put forth big visions and are comfortable with the fact that they may never see the vision fully realized. However, they take joy in knowing that if they have done their job well, the vision will transcend generations and involve thousands of people before it is realized.
Great visions are “built to last”.
CLEVELAND IS BUILT TO LAST!
