Why the most successful disruptors day dream
“All people dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible” said T.E. Lawrence.
Here’s the thing, we all have a dream to live, we all have a story to tell. Unfortunately, most do not go after their dreams. Henry Thoreau believed that too many people lead lives of quiet desperation and go to the grave with the song still in them. Do not be resigned to that, dare to break out and find new ground.
Here’s the big shift; because of unparalleled access to disruptive and mobile technology, the power of social media and the democratisation of information it has never been easier to do your big bit or your small bit to change the world. This is the secret that questers like Elon Musk, Peter Thiel, Mark Zuckerberg, Larry Page, Blake Mycoskie, Leila Janah, Cathy Tie, Ocean Pleasant, Boyan Slat and many more have discovered and are using to great effect.
Society moves forward when the impossible is made possible. If it can be dreamt, people can be inspired to find solutions.
