Making Sense of Abundance (and the Super Bowl)

In the one year anniversary of Imagine This Podcast, the gang chooses not to do an anniversary show and instead reflects on the challenges of making sense of all of the choices we have before us. Whether it's choosing which shows to watch, choosing the next step in advancing a strategy at work, or choosing how we engage as members of a civic community.
