Welcome! Our group will be adding features here in the spirit of providing Practical Solutions for the Public Good. Some posts will be serious, some fun. All, we hope, will inspire you to reflect on an idea or two that can be applied to the important work you do every day.
Those unfamiliar with us might wonder, "Why the horse imagery when your work has nothing to do with horses?" Well, prior to creating Gray Horse Consulting in 2000, inspiration for a firm name didn't come easily. No ideas seemed quite right. Then on an early spring morning, I looked out the office window where my three gray Arabians were grazing in the new grass, and asked. "Why not!?"
Now, 16 years later, the beauty, resiliency and honesty of those horses is more inspiring than ever. And the business has evolved into even more meaningful work with stronger and broader connections. So we are calling it Gray Horse Strategies and keeping "the horses."
I hope it is not too obvious to point out the lesson here. When you find something very good to care for and something meaningful to do with your time, stick with it. Why not?!
