“Inspire your People” is a great place to get ideas for propelling your team forward. In a recent post they mentioned cynicism. It’s sometimes easy for me to become a cynic. Perhaps the “I’ve seen everything” mantra promotes this. But this article caused me to think about the danger of becoming a cynic.
“There is nothing quite so tragic as a young cynic, because it means the person has gone from knowing nothing to believing nothing” said Maya Angelou
“Our knowledge has made us cynical…our cleverness, hard and unkind. We think too much and feel too little…More than cleverness, we need kindness and gentleness.” Said Charlie Chaplin
