“We can’t save the world by playing by the rules”.
In August last year, hardly anyone knew who Greta Thunberg was. The year before she didn’t have an Instagram account. But towards the end of 2018, she was speaking in front of the United Nations, giving a TED talk and being nominated for the Nobel Peace prize after inspiring millions of school children to campaign about climate change.
“I have always been that girl in the back who doesn’t say anything. I thought I couldn’t make a difference because I was too small.”
What did Greta do to become so influential in such a short period of time? And what can we learn from the way that she did it? I shared a few thoughts on my podcast “Ten Words“. 32 minutes well spent if you ask me. Or well wasted. But as John Lennon once said, “Time that you enjoy wasting is not wasted time“…
