There are days when I wonder if what I do and contribute to the world matters.
I came across this great excerpt from John Heider’s The Tao of Leadership (affiliate link). It was shared by one of the instructors at the week-long training session I’ve been attending and I thought it was worth sharing with you.
The Ripple EffectYour behavior influences others through a ripple effect.
A ripple effect works because everyone influences everyone else.
Powerful people are powerful influences.If your life works, you influence your family.
If your family works, your family influences the community.
If your community works, your community influences the nation.
If your nation works, your nation influences the world.
If your world works, the ripple effect spreads throughout the cosmos.Remember that your influence begins with you and ripples outward.
So be sure that your influence is both potent and wholesome.Taken From: The Tao of Leadership
By John Heider, 1985, p. 107.
Be well and make it a great day … and be the ripple!
