Yes–Butters and Why-Notters

by KII

I ran across an interesting post at Management Quotes.  Apparently it has been around for a number of years and unfortunately the source is not known.

Yes-butters don’t just kill ideas.

They kill companies, even entire industries.

The yes-butters have all the answers.

Yes but we’re different.

Yes but we can’t afford it.

Yes but our business doesn’t need it.

Yes but we couldn’t sell it to our workforce.

Yes but my boss might not like it.

Yes but we can’t explain it to our shareholders.

Yes but let’s wait and see-and drink some tea.

All the answers.

All the wrong answers.

Why-Notters move companies.

The next time you are in a meeting, look around and identify the yes-butters, the not-knowers and the why notters.

God bless the Why-Notters.

They dare to dream .

And to act.

By acting, they achieve what others see as unachievable.

Why not Indeed?

So find and support Why-Notters before the Yes-butters yes but you right out of business
