I’ve seen plenty of bilge proferred in the past couple of days to the effect of “If Greg Mortenson couldnt have done it right, he shouldn’t have done anything at all.”
Which, one you rip apart the pomposity, really means “if Greg Mortenson can’t adhere to some imaginary standard of perfection in my mind, he shouldnt have done anything at all.”
I can’t imagine a worse statement. As John Bogle often notes, the “enemy of the good plan is the perfect plan.”
Mortenson has made a significant difference. He has change the lives of many. Even changing the life of one would have been worth it.
Good luck, Greg. You’re in our prayers.
