Continuing The Dream
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. is one of our heroes, so we wanted to take a minute and honor his legacy this week.
If you look closely at the heart of BOS Media, you can actually see some subtle little tributes to MLK everywhere.
On our website, the first thing you see are these words:
“It all starts with a dream.”
It echoes one of the most famous speeches in history, a reminder that every good thing we want to accomplish starts as an idea. Our life’s work is about helping those dreams become reality – hopefully in ways that are more than just about making money, but making a difference in the world.
Plus there’s an important quote that you may have seen this week – LeBron James even wrote it on his shoes when the Lakers played on MLK Day:
“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”
That’s part of why our BOS Media podcast is called, “Make it Matter.” We believe in CONVERSATION – our ideas become real as we sit together and talk about the most meaningful aspects of life.
This is especially important when issues arise that feel undiscussable – as Patrick Lencioni says in The Five Dysfunctions of a Team, being willing to speak up with candor is part of maintaining a healthy organization, or even a healthy family. One of the rules we live by in our house is, “We can talk about anything” – we want that to be true of every table we gather around.
If we do this right, honoring MLK’s legacy is not just about this week. Our hope is that this shapes everything we do at BOS Media and throughout our lives.
Here’s to keeping the dream alive together!
