How does one change the world?

How does one change the world, spend your life each day becoming more knowledgeable with reading and learning from those around you and giving back?  Our fractional CTO, Gene, the approach is, “I work on me 18 to 20 hours each day since a child to learn what I didn’t know the prior day and others try to break me down with their time and energy.  Change your knowledge, share with others and the world will change.”  With each thing you learn you will have the knowledge to share and also find out how little you know, change that each moment you can, and focus on applying your knowledge with a helping hand to others.

Changing the world starts with changing ourselves, and the approach that Gene takes of constantly working on himself to learn and grow is a great example to follow. Learning from those around us is also crucial, as everyone has their own unique experiences and perspectives that can help to broaden our understanding of the world.

To give back, we can share our knowledge with others and use our skills and abilities to help those in need. This could involve volunteering our time, mentoring others, or using our professional expertise to help solve social and environmental problems.

In addition to personal growth and giving back, systemic change is also necessary to truly transform the world. This can involve advocating for policies and practices that promote equity and sustainability and working towards creating a more just and inclusive society.

Ultimately, changing the world is a collaborative effort, and it requires individuals, communities, and organizations to work together toward a common goal. By focusing on personal growth, giving back, and advocating for systemic change, we can all play a role in creating a better world for ourselves and future generations.
