Pleasing the world

‘One stop shops’
‘Being all things to all men’
‘Something for everyone’
While these slogans
Are a nod towards inclusion
And serving as many people as people
They are not effective mandates
For service delivery,
Nor are they reasonable
Mission statements
For any organization.
None of us are likely
To build anything
That will please the whole world
And neither should we try to.
Better rather
To find your people
The ones that care about
The corner of the world
You’ve decided to set up camp in
And do what you do
For them.
The world can catch up.
