It’s Simply Bullshit: Who Are You Trying to Impress?

bsWe are constantly being told what to do. I shut down the noise of living other people’s rules.I don’t care who’s on the list and how often they self-congratulate each other. I care what they stand for and what they actually do in terms of impact, not activity.
