Interesting story on social change:

Let us suppose that when the sun rose one morning there were 99 monkeys on Koshima Island who had learned to wash their sweet potatoes. Let’s further suppose that later that morning, the hundredth monkey learned to wash potatoes.


By that evening almost everyone in the tribe was washing sweet potatoes before eating them. The added energy of this hundredth monkey somehow created an ideological breakthrough!

Change is hard. Blogging is hard. Being influential doesn’t come overnight. It takes years and years of hard work, but if you can persevere, eventually you have the opportunity to make a difference.
