This blog post from Seth Godin says something profound to me about impact.
It’s just the sort of inspiration I want to share with anyone thinking of hosting a Local Impact Cafe to help celebrate the World Café’s 20th Anniversary because it shows that impact begins at home, with how we see each other, and how we see ourselves:
The mirror we hold up to the person next to us is one of the most important pictures she will ever see.
Seth goes on to say:
“If we can help just one person refuse to accept false limits, we’ve made a contribution. If we can give people the education, the tools and the access they need to reach their goals, we’ve made a difference. And if we can help erase the systemic stories, traditions and policies that push entire groups of people to insist on less, we’ve changed the world.”
