Try as you might, it’s hard to avoid the imposition of doom, gloom and political madness, now more than ever. Whether it’s Donny ‘Cable TV Host’ Trump, How The F*** Brexit, Everybody Elses Climate Change, How Do I Pay The Bills or just the damn cold and rain outside.
It is also hard, even with the increasing awareness, advice and efforts, to see past our preconceptions, education, life experiences and personalised media bubbles.
But, there are those that are particularly, and occasionally spectacularly adept at focusing forwards. One of those has to be Alex Steffen, who recently ran a successful Kickstarter campaign, that even inspired my own credit card into action.
Want to know what the future could look like, and more importantly how to make it happen? It is maybe easier than you think…
“I believe it’s literally true that we can’t build what we can’t imagine. The fact that we haven’t compellingly imagined a thriving, dynamic, sustainable world is a major reason we don’t already live in one.
Our challenges are epic. If building a better world seems out of our reach, then we need to become people who can reach farther. We extend that reach by embracing bigger visions. To become people capable of doing heroic things together, we have to envision a heroic future. That’s the mission: finding that heroic future, and the paths we take to get there.”
Heroic. Together. Now. Start. Be Bold. Fail. Learn. Improve. Repeat.
