Community and culture are terms often misused and conflated.
Community is driven by proximity. The people you find yourself surrounded by defines your community.
Culture is driven by ideas and actions. The shared ideas and idiosyncrasies of a group define culture. Culture isn’t necessarily tied to where we are at any given moment.
We spend our lives so thoroughly immersed in community and culture that we don’t notice its impacts on us. We react and respond to its whims and wishes unconsciously.
Time to wake up.
You get to choose who you do and don’t spend time with. You also get to choose the beliefs and behavior you accept and those you don’t.
Get the community right and together bend the culture to help everyone develop their potential and deliver on their promise.
How can you be more intentional and specific about the community you spend time with and the culture you’re co-creating?
