We often think of societal progress in terms of things that other people accomplish.
It's especially true this time of year. Mainstream media publish defining moments and top ten lists of big news makers over the past twelve months.
We don't think it's the big names in news that make the biggest difference.
We think it's you, and your gorgeous participation. And we need you now more than ever.
- We need people that self renew and serial connect;
- We need people that tweak;
- We need people that aren't afraid to ship their thoughts;
- We need people that give back;
- We need people that can't be ignored;
- We need people that contribute and collaborate; (Thx Dana)
- We need people who share what they're passionate about with the world.
It's easy to hole up to wait for the tough times to pass, but change has never been more necessary. There's never been a better time to hack at the status quo. To revel in the new.
If you're reading this you already get it. So act on your obligation to recruit another. Help them find a subtle opportunity to innovate.
You don't need the big idea, the perfect speech or to have built something for the ages to matter. You just need to participate. The world no longer has a viable alternative to your citizen participation.
That's why you're essential to progress.
Happy New Year.
