While at the beach this weekend enjoying the gorgeous Gulf Coast with its pristine, blue-green water and white sand, I couldn’t help making an analogy to meetings. The weather was perfect and umbrellas were lined up for miles with families soaking it all in.
Our section of beach, however, had a dune lake that took up a portion of the beach. Cars were allowed to drive almost to the shore, and vehicles with the right permits and 4-wheel drive parked surrounding the dune lake with tailgates. A large majority of the beach’s patrons actually faced the stagnant (brown) lake where so many children played they had to navigate around one another.
