Creating a Culture of NO

I noticed all these signs around the local county parks and rec facility when I dropped my son off at an event. It made me think a minute. This is a taxpayer-financed place where kids and adults are supposed to be welcome to come and play and have fun and yet from the first entrance to the facility it’s built upon a complete culture of NO. It’s actually even worse on the inside where the walls are plastered with even more signs and notices for this or that. It’s not all safety stuff either. A lot of it is pointless drivel, the kind of pointless drivel you find in governments, bureaucracies, corporations, and other places.

No, you can’t do this. No, you can’t go there. No, you can’t. You can’t. You can’t.







It made me wonder, are you doing things in your life that create a culture of NO? If you are, stop. Stop right now.

I can’t let the facility escape notice either for their transgression of “if you pay your taxes, we’ll build it, and you can’t enjoy it”. It’s the South Strand Recreational Center in Horry County, South Carolina just south of Myrtle Beach. Good job guys.
