When Calgarians read those words, they immediately think of a political tug-of-war that’s been brewing in this city for a long time — the on-again ~ off-again challenge of politicians vs. business interests trying to negotiate a secret contract behind closed doors and in the media simultaneously — doing it badly, and failing one step forward, then two steps back. The Landlord is being out-witted and out-negotiated by its Tenant, compounded by rookie mistakes (our mayor) and the dynamics of a weary public juxtaposed against a winning season for the Tenant (our Calgary Flames.)
But that’s not my subject du jour — the issue is about taking risks, believing in yourself and taking the consequences. I’ve written on this subject before, but nothing I can say holds a candle to this talk by Brene Brown. Hoppy oyster weekend everyone.
