The world is defined by change.
Change begets and accelerates change.
If you help a really powerful idea or entrepreneur get started they are not going to stop. You are helping launch the institution.
The goal is to change the world for the good.
If you’re not a changemaker the last thing in the world you want to see is a problem or opportunity because you can’t do anything about it.
Group play is a good way for kids to practice empathy.
The world is complicated.
The rate of change is going up exponentially.
We’re at a point where rules don’t exist.
There is a new paradigm for education.
You can’t have a team where everybody is telling everybody else what to do.
People can’t afford to have you on your team if you aren’t a changemaker.
Everybody has to be a changemaker.
A changemaker is the most powerful thing you can be.
Society wide it is important for us all to work together.
Entrepreneur means pattern change. It does not mean direct service.
Every type of person is in education.
