Paul McEnany at Hee-Haw Marketing rages against the devil in his quest for a higher purpose.
Actually, Paul’s stomping on devil’s advocates everywhere:
Devil’s advocates are everywhere.You know why?
Because it’s easy to say no. It doesn’t take much thought, and it sure doesn’t take much work. The devil’s advocate is the person that kills action for the sake of killing action. He takes that stance because he is too lazy to find solutions, too stupid to come up with his own ideas, or too selfish to share the glory.
Go read his post. Please.
And here are 5 reasons to say “yes”:
- You’ll learn something. Even if the idea doesn’t fly, you’ll learning something valuable.
- You’ll get a rush of adrenaline when you jump in…not with a single toe, but with your whole dang foot.
- You’ll realize the value of an idea.
- You’ll get a chance to connect with people.
- You’ll be inspired.
Say YES. I can’t guarantee it’ll work, but it’ll be one heck of a worthwhile ride.
