What we are not helps define what we are.
Yet certainly, that cannot end there. This is particularly true when we compete, when we try to influence, when we run against something that is already established.
We need to differentiate, and that cannot be done by merely saying “not-the-other”. The more you let this message run, the more steam you are transferring to your adversary’s engine.
Building movements that matter is hard job because they require self-reflection, deep knowledge of the playing field and story building.
All the rest is a shortcut, and short is the breath that will sustain it.
