Call to action

Everyday we receive a ‘call to action’ from somebody out there on the world wide web, on the street, in the media and of course on social media platforms. ‘Mum says if I get 100,000 ‘Likes’ I’ll get a new puppy’.

I was asked last night after a reader received my blog post, “Where’s your call to action?”

Seriously folks, can’t we just chat? Can’t we just start a conversation that has people start to think, talk and share their views without broadcasting ‘Hey you out there I’d like you to respond to this blog after reading it.’ I mean, the invitation is already there for you to respond as I put my thoughts out there in the most public place on the planet.

Does everything really have to have a marketing edge? If it does then I fear we have reduced ourselves and our species to nothing more than a bunch of self absorbed sales people that believe we have the answer for everything and everyone.

I have no answers, only questions and if in the sharing of our thoughts we solve a few problems or come closer to solving some then it was a great conversation to have.
