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.”

Thanks so much to Greg Guiliano for posting this link on our World Café group on LinkedIn.
