Drop Out -- Like a Boss

Posted: Updated:

It was a great week for resignation letters and dropping out of organizations gone astray. There's that third step of our prescription for revolution, "Turn on. Tune in. Drop out." coming back to life again...

Tuesday Google exec James Whittaker dropped out and resigned from Google saying their use of personal data "creeps me out."

Then Wednesday's sensational drop out, Goldman Sachs director Greg Smith quitting in disgust: "It makes me ill how callously people talk about ripping their clients off. "

Courage is contagious and together we are strong.

It's time to open our eyes to whatever corrupt institutions we may be inadvertently supporting with our time, money or energy -- and DROP OUT of them... Then let the world know you did and why -- giving others courage to do the same.

"You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete."
