Hunter-gatherers vs. Traders vs. Social Impact Entrepreneurs: Human Evolution.
Once upon a time, three tribes stumbled upon a goose that laid golden eggs. Let’s see what each one does.
The hunter-gatherers were either ignorant or tempted by quick meal or riches. They killed the goose, hoping to feast on its golden eggs and goose. They lived and continued their way of life 😢
The traders however, had a smarter plan. They knew they can wait and get golden eggs and sell them. Instead of killing the goose, they waited for it to lay more eggs. Then, they sold all those golden treasures in the market and became wealthy.
Traditionally this is where the textbook story ends.
Hey, wait, there is more. The social impact entrepreneur’s tribe took a whole new approach. They cared for the goose, ensuring its health, and cared for it. They sold some eggs, but always left enough for hatching more goslings. 🐔
This tribe is educated and are dharmic. Rooted in their education with Dharma, Artha, Kama and Moksha. So, it is not just personal wealth, but a thriving and sustainable environment. With the proceeds, they built a good farm, let the eggs hatch and got few more goslings. With a little more patience, they build an optimal lifecycle and got more in return. They had their time, had fun with their family and friends. They even mastered the art of having more goslings and passed the wisdom to their children and community and even helped other tribes in need. Their business benefited everyone around them. 💚 They earned good Karma!
