Here’s food for thought . . . Whine or win; it’s our choice.
Are we here to whine about our problems, or work together for solutions?
On Friday, May 29, the Silicon Valley Leadership Group and 24 incredibly diverse community partners will co-host our 4th Annual Regional Economic Forum, bringing together leaders from throughout the region.
The purpose of the forum will be to truly tackle what we call THEE issues.
The “T” is for Transportation & Traffic.
The “H” is for Housing & Homelessness.
The “E” is for Education & Workforce.
The second “E” is for Equity & Economic Opportunity.
Yes, we all know those issues are among the top challenges we face in Silicon Valley. But here’s the catch: No one at our Regional Economic Forum is allowed to whine about the problem, or re-state the challenge. Panelists and participants will only be allowed to discuss solutions – and preferably solutions that they will either personally lead or support.
When it comes to real solutions for transportation, housing, education and economic opportunity, it is past time we stopped whining, and focused on winning solutions to these seemingly intractable problems. We can continue to wring our hands together in discouragement, or join our hands together with encouragement.
