THE DICHOTOMY OF A ‘WOKE’ INDIVIDUAL

 

Society prefers you don’t speak up, society prefers you colour within the lines. Society wants you to conform. 

In a world where everyone has a microphone it takes courage to stand out. To find a voice and say this is what I believe in. This is what is important to me. This is what matters. 

We live in an increasingly distracted world, where everything and everyone is vying for our attention. 

I wish this attention was being spent on things that matter but its not. Instead, what we have is wave after wave of generalisations, drivel and unwarranted opinion pieces (this is an opinion piece in itself, but bare with me. I am making a larger point here). 

Anyone who suggests otherwise, sides with the minority or veers left is labeled crazy, incorrect or misinformed. 

I say its time you wake up!

Being Woke means being aware.. Knowing whats going on

 

 

 

Who wants to be a Billionaire?

Why do we do what we do? Why does 'x' exist? (c/o Simon Sinek) 

I believe that change happens in real time, in the subtext...change is all around us. About a year ago, I had an idea that has shaped how i now filter the world, call it my 'THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING MOMENT'.

I believe that ideas have currency, and great ideas are worth a billion dollars! In a world where we have a bias towards the incremental, I believe that we have lost our ability to be great thinkers. Humanities greatest loss will be the loss of shared creativity.

Great things are happening daily, 'The future is already here - It's just not evenly distributed' and that is the problem! If more people knew what is available to them today, the power of their voice, the abundance of resources, we would collectively become world changers - impacting peoples lives in tangible and meaningful ways everyday.

So why does any of this matter? 

The greatest pain for mankind has always been the distribution of resources from those with to those without. The information age is a great time to live in but it is also  a double edge sword. We now have more access that we have ever had, but do we have access to the right things....

I have thought about this problem, its a problem worth solving and one we should solve together. I have created a platform an Idea Sharing platform called YACHT ENVY, we are going to be a $10B company in 5 years and I would like for you to join us.
