One of my favorite Philadelphians and human beings, Wil Reynolds, tipped me off on this post tonight.
Doers see something they don’t like, and do something to change it. Talkers see something they don’t like and tell everyone how much they don’t like it, but never do anything about it. Wishers see something they don’t like and tell themselves in the head over and over how much they wished things were different.
Doers attract doers. Talkers attract wishers.
Doers like to be around other doers. Being around people who not only want to change things, but actually change things helps the doers keep doing. Meanwhile, talkers tend to hang out with other talkers and surround themselves with wishers who will listen to the talkers talk about how they would change everything if they were in charge. This makes the talkers feel important and makes the wishers feel like someone else might actually change things for them.
I think one of the main reasons that Indy Hall is a nexus of doers is because it was started by doers – and I’m not talking about myself.
I’m talking about some of the most fantastic people in Philadelphia who chose to do it with me.
