On Fridays I want to share with you a quote, some thougths, an image...something that talks to me and inspires me to seek positive change and be a better person everyday.oday, no more words needed.
I am lucky to have in my life a few people that know me to the core and know what I feel and think about the world, despite thousands of kilometers between us.
When my work wife shipped me Factfulness / Ten Reasons We're Wrong About the World - and Why Things are Better THan You Think from Hans Rosling (with Ola Rosling and Anna Rosling Ronnlund), she hit it right one more time.
I barely started, but the first chapters have made me nod quietly in the train.
I have always considered myself an optimistic person: I want to believe in the best in people. But being a "possibilist" is probably another, if not better, characteristics of mine: there are reasons, dynamics, things that make people and things go the way they go, or not work the way they do not work.
The discourse around climate change is dramatic, and there are so many reasons to believe the fight is over. But I cannot stop thinking that progress is around the corner if we want to work our asses off and move towards it. It is not an easy way, and it is hard to think "big picture" when the fate of each of us as individuals is at risk.
But this is who I am. This is what I do. This is what I want to believe in.
And this is what OUTSIDE THE BOX is about.
