Either write some­thing worth read­ing or do some­thing worth writ­ing.”

What does this mean?

Every now and then, I have to point out that some organ­isa­tion­al prob­lems aren’t PR prob­lems; they’re organ­isa­tion­al problems.

With PR activ­it­ies, you can fix pub­lic rela­tions prob­lems but can’t fix organ­isa­tion­al prob­lems (bad products or ser­vices, uneth­ic­al prac­tices, illeg­al prac­tices, etc.).
