Be For Something!

From the awesome book -"Rules of Thumb" (Alan M. Webber)

"In general, it’s a good idea to learn to speak  economics, if you can’t already. That’s because people on both sides of a fight respect the dollars and cents of an issue. Proving that your solution is less expensive and works better makes your moral arguments all the more compelling.  ... it’s not enough to be against something that’s bad — you’ve got to be for something that’s better."

I am for taking a vacation. See you in a couple weeks.

"You've got to be for something that's better"...I like that. If an executive feels there is not other choice then they are more likely to take the risk and their one shot. You have to bring something to the table. Great statement, thanks for sharing!
