Chump change

CULTURE will dictate how far an organization will progress or digress as former Singaporean Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew said, “Culture is destiny”. Changing a culture seems a daunting task since mindsets of those within the organization have been likely set, fixed and established by factors outside the organi­zation, such as family, religion and school. Of the many core beliefs that Filipinos need to do to make the Philippines great again as suggested by lawyer and author Alexander Lacson, I think the most important belief is that we Filipinos should consider that “unity is higher and more important than individuality, without choking anyone’s creativity”. We should stand united, for, in the words of former United States President John F. Kennedy, “united, there is little we cannot do; divided, there is little we can do”.
