Embrace Complex Optimism

“I always like to look on the optimistic side of life, but I am realistic enough to know that life is a complex matter.” – Walt Disney

Being an optimist doesn’t mean everything is always sunshine and snowflakes. Being an optimist doesn’t mean we fail to see obstacles and work through fears. Being an optimist doesn’t mean we only work with happy people and that we are always in a good mood.

I am an optimist. I truly believe we can move mountains together. In my unchangeable core I believe we are shaping the future. The work we do – our vision for the future – is simple. The path we follow, our journey together, is incredibly complex.

We are working with individuals. We strive to personalize education for over 16,000 young people on a daily basis. Simple goal . . . Complex matter.

Being an optimist is essential in our work; it drives our commitment. We are also realistic in the work we do; we embrace the complexity of our work. We solve problems, overcome obstacles, and blaze new paths. We do so knowing that we are creating a better tomorrow. That is the true optimist in each of us.
