There are a million reasons to say no, but few reasons to stand up and say yes.
No requires just one objection, one defensible reason to avoid change. No has many allies— Anyone who fears the future or stands to benefit from the status quo. And no is easy to say because you actually don’t even need a reason.
No is an easy way to grab power, because with yes comes responsibility, but no is the easy way to block action, to exert the privilege of your position to slow things down.
No comes from fear and greed and, most of all, a shortage of openness and attention. you don’t have to pay attention or do the math or role play the outcomes in order to joint the coalition that would rather things stay as they are(because they’ve chosen not to do the hard work of imagining how they might be).
And yet the coalition of No keeps losing. We live in a world of yes, where possibility and innovation and the willingness to care often triumph over the masses that would rather it all just quieted down and went back to normal.
Yes is the new normal. And just in time.(from seths blog, nice and I thought it would be nice to share).
WHY might you ask…? BECAUSE WE ARE A COMPANY OF “YES”. We take on some of the hardest challenges possible in the world or restoration. Some fun some not so fun. Regardless, we perform: Lead Safe Liquid Paint Removal, Carpentry (new and old), Dry Rot, Water Proofing, Deck Restoration, and so much more.
We also have great working relationships with our Friends over at “Space Down Under” who can perform any concrete or metal work needed, including house lifting / foundation replacement. Michael M Seibert Construction of which does some of the best high end remodeling I’ve ever seen. Charter Construction and they’re very large commercial HOA remediation projects. And many more… All of which say YES…. And if I can’t, I’ll get you someone who can…
