Things I Don’t Want to Hear Anymore

hand-stopThings I don’t want to hear anymore:

  1. We can do well by doing good.
  2. Society doesn’t need another nonprofit, or social enterprise. Instead of creating something, help out with what others are already doing.
  3. The strengths of each sector combined together can do more than each on its own.
  4. The world needs leaders with experience in all sectors to solve its most intractable problems.

Haven’t we internalized these things already? Sometimes, I think we waste our time repeating the same axioms to the same groups of people. Can’t we accept as given, move on, and figure out how to best implement these lessons?

Maybe not…
