Bringing back some humanity

You can’t ask without permission. And you don’t get permission without trust. There is no trust without attention.

Doing something really stupid will get you lots of attention. But it doesn’t earn trust. So find your smallest, sustainable market and give something back. Make something without asking for anything in return. It’s a gift. An act of generosity. Do it because you have something to contribute.

Start small. If you are looking to change a million people, it wont happen if you can’t change ten. If it’s good maybe, they will tell ten friends. The word spreads. Be aware that no product, good or service is for everybody. Just make it for somebody. Make it with love.

In a world that is stripping us of humanity, bring some of it back. Its not give, give, give and then take. No, its give, give, give, ask.
