Permission

It’s not uncommon for teenagers to whine that there’s nothing to do in this town. Or for college students to talk about the limits of their institution, about the paucity of opportunities at the placement office or the lack of campus activities. And of course, those that complain that the boss won’t let me.

All three complaints are based on a view of the world that requires permission and easy access.

In the connection economy, the valuable asset is the ability to convene. When we are able to initiate, to make something happen and to be trusted, we not only create value, we create a life.

Seth Godin,  Adoping a Post-Obedient Mindset
