From WeAreTheCity’s Future Leader’s Blog   Are you a realistic optimist? Do you assume things will go well? Do you dare take sensible risk, believing in yourself whilst doing so?

And do you at the same time stop and think about the practicalities of it all? How long it will take? If you have the...
