"Do you have a minute for the environment?”
I hear that question often on the street outside our office courtesy of a gauntlet of canvassers hired by advocacy groups to lasso stray pedestrians into signing petitions
or donating to the cause.
More often than not, I don’t have a minute for Mother Earth, which makes me feel like a real jerk. I’m usually on my way somewhere — and the last thing I have patience for is a marketing pitch. Regardless, the question always makes me feel like I should stop.
What kind of monster can’t spare 60 seconds for the environment? This kind of monster, evidently. But that won’t stop me from making a similar request: Do you have 5 minutes to check out our new video series on management?
One final question:
Do you have a minute to share your thoughts?
