Dis!Organize Ep. 73: Keep a Peasant’s Heart.

In my study and learning, I keep coming back to this question: 

How do we make a bigger, or the biggest, difference?

It is easy to see ourselves as a tiny cog in The Machine, useful but rarely impactful. Especially for those who are disenfranchised from the decision-making process and the opportunity matrix by systemic barriers to entry: gender, race, socio-economic standing.

This is simply a reminder – that it is possible, it is plausible, that you are the one to make it happen. There is a line in Ulysses by James Joyce that holds that space of possibility:

“The movements which work revolutions in the world, are born out of the dreams and visions in a peasant’s heart on a hillside.” 

More poetic and idealistic than anything I could craft, but you can change the world! To disorganize your workplace is to start something, somewhere. Small and unnoticed at first, but with a rippling effect that amplifies and scales over time and through others.

This Much We Know.
