A shaper of the future. Wow.
Not me, surely. The forces and players around me are too big and too many and too complex for my contribution to make much of a difference.

The future that emerges from the myriad of choices being made is not set in stone. Every tile added to the mosaic influences what sort of image ultimately emerges. We each need to believe that showing up fully and contributing whole-heartedly is like adding a tile to the mosaic.
If you don’t contribute your tile, who will?
