The larger and intractable-seeming our problems, the larger and more magnificent the solutions we create.
If you can believe it, it can happen. You just got to get real about it.
The larger and intractable-seeming our problems, the larger and more magnificent the solutions we create. That’s humanity’s crowning achievement: its ability to solve problems in ways that turn problems into pivot points for new and better futures. Anyone who is down on humanity, or down on the future doesn’t understand the greatness that is humanity.
The critical mind (the one that tells you to “be realistic”) wants us to have all the answers, answers to questions we don’t need answers to right now. Your friends and acquaintances and the strangers you talk to about your plans often come from this part of their heads when they tell you you’re stupid, crazy, a pipe dreamer or a Utopian for trying to do what you’re doing.
