Have you ever really thought about the things that you just can’t not do? Preparing for a meeting where I’ll only play a color commentator role…I warned the presenter that there are times when I have great difficulty not saying something that needs to be said. It’s just the way I’m wired. Can I control myself? Yeah…but not easily. Why? Because sometimes it is just the perfect moment to jump on board with a comment that is about something I’m REALLY passionate about! And the only way I can not say something is if I ducktape my mouth closed.
How about you? Are there things that you can’t not do? Steve Roesler has a great post today about the things that a person can’t not do. An interesting take.
I actually think there are things that an organization can’t not do. For the same reason. Just wired to contribute in that way. And to do anything else (or less) would be compromise.
Take a look at Steve’s post. Good stuff. He’s also got a really good prescription for action.
