Thought of the Week – Stop Apologizing Please
Everywhere you look people are apologizing; politicians for previous position held decades ago, business leaders for past practices dating back in some instances centuries, and everyday people for former behavior or opinions held. It seems there is an insatiable desire to prove you are the most woke.
We have to ask ourselves when is enough, enough? Being on the proverbial apology tour is draining and I’d argue unauthentic. My thought of the week is that we have to get out of the grievance culture, the newly formed hashtag era where no previous position, opinion or behavior is beyond an apology. Instead I suggest a better policy is to take a moment, learn, move on and evolve.
