Build your sidewalks where people want to walk

This sign appeared at my YMCA the other day. It is a typical response to change. Instead of building the sidewalk for the convenience of the people who use it to get into the building, let’s put up a cheesy, hand made sign that chastises people for walking the shortest route from the parking lot into the building.

Lesson One: Build your sidewalks for the people who use them. Make it as easy as possible. Build them where they want to walk.

Lesson Two: When you start posting cheesy, handmade signs to scold people, you’ve lost your focus and it sends the wrong message to 98% of the people who don’t need the sign in the first place.

Think before you post!
