People Who Want To Change The World


When I was younger, I had the idea that one day I will change the world.  Greek mathematician Archimedes’ words, “give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which to place it, I shall move the world” was my inspiration.

I was pre-teen at the time.  Now in my graying years, I learned that passion of my junior years took on multilevel meanings, unbeknownst to me at the time.  Has the world changed because what I had done?  Did I find my lever and fulcrum?


Before you judge me with the likes of Albert Einstein, Marie Curie, or Steve Job, allow me to explain.  Somewhere along the way, I heard the story of the Starfish.  It was a profound paradigm shift for me.  Finally I found my fulcrum to plant my feet on solid ground.

You see, the world I changed is not the capital World of the luminaries but the world of individuals (as in starfish).  I met my wife, raised a family, retired from a government career. In my humble opinion I have made differences along the way.

And I am not done changing the world yet.

Do you want to change the world?
