“You can blame people who knock things over in the dark or you can begin to light candles. You’re only at fault if you know about the problem and choose to do nothing” — Paul Hawken
Someone is doing something wrong, so you have three options:
- Do nothing. It’s not your business
- Put the blame on someone. Maybe pointing out the problem will make someone else solve it
- Start fixing it by yourself
If your coworkers are lucky enough, you’ll pick option 3. It requires understanding the problem, figuring out a solution and having the guts to implement it.
And then, you must deal with the people who choose options 1 and 2 instead. Not easy, but correct.
