Every time


Every time you walk past the graffiti and do nothing about it, every time you sit on the broken seat (or don’t sit on the broken seat because it’s broken) and do nothing about it, every time you say nothing when that one person is late again for the meeting, every time you make the same excuses for the same problem but fail to deal with the problem, every time you let it slide.

Evert time you do nothing, not only do you have to live with whatever problem you’re not dealing with, you also teach all those around you that this problem isn’t a problem at all, at least not a problem you care about – and that it’s therefore ok for them to ignore.

Maybe you want an easy life.

Problem is, ignored problems tend to get bigger and cause bigger problems still.

Skippy strategy: Don’t ignore it, fix it.
