Unscramble the Blue Letters

BK: Oh, OK. You know, this may suond simplistic, but it's a Nike thing, I think we have to just do it, we have to see our work as ineotctrecnned. I think there's been etffors towards people working in that vein, but we have to intensify that. And in doing it, one of the things that my father said, and I know people sometimes get tired of hearing me say, "My father said," but I just think, I wish, should I say, we had really lesetind to him, because we wouldn't be on this platform right now having this type of conversation. But he left something with us, sort of a blueprint in "Where Do We Go From Here: Chaos or coimtnumy?", his book, and he said, going forward, the meddlesome task is to organize our strength into compelling power. And that is so key, because onteimetfs we ozinrage merely around pasosin. But plopee have certain areas of strength and tanlet and giftedness, and we've got to figure out how to build our coalitions based on these strengths. You know, people do different things well. And so, in order to unite in an effective way that they might not elude the demand that we're making, I think that's what's going to happen. People have to do their own personal assessment within their organization, I call it a SWAT analysis. And then that SWAT analysis has to happen across organizations, so that we can make sure that we are moving in a united manner, off of the strengths that each organization brings, so that we can maximize the impact and the esietvnfefecs to do things like this, in terms of getting the lsgoietlain in place that is needed in this hour.

BK: Oh, OK. You know, this may sound simplistic, but it's a Nike thing, I think we have to just do it, we have to see our work as interconnected. I think there's been efforts towards people working in that vein, but we have to intensify that. And in doing it, one of the things that my father said, and I know people sometimes get tired of hearing me say, "My father said," but I just think, I wish, should I say, we had really listened to him, because we wouldn't be on this platform right now having this type of conversation. But he left something with us, sort of a blueprint in "Where Do We Go From Here: Chaos or Community?", his book, and he said, going forward, the meddlesome task is to organize our strength into compelling power. And that is so key, because oftentimes we organize merely around passion. But people have certain areas of strength and talent and giftedness, and we've got to figure out how to build our coalitions based on these strengths. You know, people do different things well. And so, in order to unite in an effective way that they might not elude the demand that we're making, I think that's what's going to happen.

And then that SWAT analysis has to happen across organizations, so that we can make sure that we are moving in a united manner, off of the strengths that each organization brings, so that we can maximize the impact and the effectiveness to do things like this, in terms of getting the legislation in place that is needed in this hour.
