Shaping your future
Inspired by the book 'Be more pirate', I want to talk to you about a concept that I believe is crucial for the future of your business and society: moving away from the traditional model of consumerism - citizenshift.
In today's world, we often view people as consumers. We see them as a means to an end, a way to sell our products and services. But what if we changed the way we thought about people? What if we viewed them not as consumers, but as citizens?
As citizens, people have a stake in their communities and a responsibility to contribute to the greater good. They are not just there to buy and consume, but to participate and engage. By viewing people as citizens rather than consumers, we shift the focus from short-term gain to long-term sustainability and well-being.
Transform your business
This shift in perspective has the potential to transform the way we do business. It encourages companies to consider the broader impact of their actions and to prioritise the needs of their communities. It also encourages people to take an active role in shaping the world around them, rather than simply consuming what is offered to them.
Purpose over profit
The idea of citizenshift is not without challenges. It requires a shift in mindset and a willingness to prioritise people and communities over profit. But I believe it is a necessary step towards creating a more just and sustainable future.So let's start viewing people as citizens rather than consumers. Shift our focus from short-term gain to long-term sustainability and well-being. The impact on yourself, your business, your community and your world will be immeasurable.
