“Hope” may be an overused word. And it can mean many things depending on the circumstances and the context. A good friend of mine used to describe corporate stock options as a “Certificate of Hope.” I love that metaphor. Having lived through the dot-com bubble and had options that ended up worth nothing, I can relate. But in the context of stock options, the hope is really a “wish.” You know if that “hope” doesn’t come to pass, life goes on.
