CSR Series: YFC Reflections – Stop Myopia
How do you define faith?
For me, faith involves trusting the unknown, the uncertain.
Faith involves looking at the future.
One of the aspects that our YFC Shared Learning experience taught me is, really, to have faith. To not be blinded by things that are in front of us now, but to anticipate. To have foresight.
The problem with us people, even the corporations? Too much myopia. Too much nearsightedness. We only try to see what is in the present, not its effects on our future.
Relating this to our thesis, this is not supposed to be the case.
For Dr. Young and Dr. Tilley, an enterprise which truly integrates sustainability must always take note of its actions’ consequences to the future generations. The concept of futurity.
Let us look beyond what the naked eyes can see.
Maybe, with just a little touch of foresight, we can tremendously change our future and direct it to a brighter tomorrow.
