At first, it seems as though the things you declare, espouse and promise matter a lot. And they do. For a while.

But in the end, we will judge you on what you do.

When the gap between what you say and what you do gets big enough, people stop listening.

The compromises we make, the clients we take on, the things we do when we think no one is watching… this is how people measure us.

Emmanuel Bonoko [24] is one of South Africa’s amazing young doers. Emmanuel, founder of the Ebonoko Foundation, is empowering youth through a potent mix of education and inspiration.

The fact that Forbes Africa nominated him and other 29 change-makers as the most promising entrepreneurs bears testimony to his work.

A very humble person, Emmanuel gets his hand dirty organising, delivering, engaging, building, encouraging people around him through seminars, training, and other platforms.

He is a true face of Social Entrepreneurship.

Doers are not motivated by awards, they are inspired by impact, by doing what they are passionate about but most importantly doing work that matters.

What people like Emmanuel encourage is not to spend the whole day thinking, stand up, roll your sleeve, get back to work.

The evidence of thinking is work [not thinking]

The world needs dreamers and the world needs doers.

But above all, the world needs dreamers who do.

Do more than you talk.
