I received an email today that just blew my mind. A person wrote that they were upset because an organization they were involved with 20 years ago was going to stop inviting them to the annual meeting – something the organization has done every year since they left.
Are they currently involved with the organization? No.
Do they support the organization financially? No.
Have they ever used the invitation? No.
So as I was reading this person’s rant it occurred to me … entitlement comes in all forms. Why would anyone think they are entitled to something forever?
Wake up people. If you want to be invited to the party, you have to bring something.
