Whatever Happened to the B-HAGs?
They weren't just big goals.
They were Big Hairy Audacious Goals.
Like Bigfoot, they used to be spotted all over public radio land. Like Bigfoot, they are seldom spoken of anymore.
When we had our swagger in public radio, we talked of doing all sorts of great things. We committed to goals. Seemingly impossible goals.
But we believed that if we set the goal, a real and measurable goal, we'd find a way. And if we didn't quite get there, we still be better for trying.
The B-HAGs are coming back.
They will be too big to ignore.
