People who change the world


The difference between someone who changes the world and someone who happily lives in a world that’s shaped by others is illustrated by their reaction to the status quo.

The former might say something like, “I wonder if…” and follow that curiosity (or frustration/rage, if that’s their baseline temperament) all the way down the rabbit hole, whereas the latter says, “That’s just the way things are, I guess.”

I’m trying to surround myself with the former.
