I know you have good intentions.
You want to change things, you have earth shatteringly wonderful ideas, you can see clearly the pathway forward that you or your organization should take — but instead you do nothing.
Be warned good intentions will not remain forever, like fresh bread they grow stale in the long grass, weeds grow over them, birds peck at them breaking them apart, slowly those good intentions rot into the soil from which they came.
When good intentions are not actively fought for, when the intention never becomes your direction, all that is left behind is cynicism and the sad unseen realty of what might have been.
Don’t lie down with good intentions, wake up with them instead.
When you DON’T fight for what you know is right, you become smaller, you become less important, you shrink and the hope that you had for “living a powerful and significant life” rots into the soil.
Good intentions require brave actions, it’s time for you to speak up! (Tweet!)
