Make change

A horizon is a phenomenon of vision. One cannot look at the horizon; it is simply the point beyond which we cannot see.*
(James Carse)

“Here, I made this.” […] These four words carry with them generosity, intent, risk, and intimacy. The more we say them, and mean them, and deliver on them, the more art and connection we create. And we create change.**
(Seth Godin)

We can get boundaries and horizons mixed up.

When we move beyond a boundary we encounter resistance; that’s why it’s a boundary. When we move towards the horizon, it moves.

Yes, there’ll be boundaries along the way, but by then we’ll have gained the self-knowledge and confidence to believe we can keep moving.

We will all see different horizons, defining the kind of change we will make.
