The article suggests that for establishing an organization where everybody wins, one needs to transform one's ideas into dreams, and translate those dreams into reality. Creating a dream is hard work and translating it into reality is even harder. Most people confuse ideas with dreams. An idea is a concept. Lots of people have lots of ideas, but few people turn their ideas into dreams. People often think they have an idea that is incredible. Then they start sharing it with anyone who would listen. But soon they learn that their idea captures people's minds, but is powerless to touch their hearts, as only a dream goes to the heart. So, to capture both minds and hearts one should realize that forming a dream team requires uniting of hearts and minds fully committed to the effort to make a dream come true.
