WEEK 44: Tuesday — Force of Life

W44D2 TubmanQuote


Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.

– Harriet Tubman

The people should not think that small beginnings are unimportant. They will be happy when they see Zerubbabel with tools, building the Temple.

Zechariah 4:10

Pareto’s principle: roughly 80% of the effects come from 20% of the causes.

The 80/20 rule states that the few (20%) are vital while the many (80%) are trivial. Vilfredo Pareto made this connection in 1906 while studying the movement of power in Italy. What he noticed was that 80% of the land in Italy was owned by 20% of the population. What did he find out about that? A lot of us get lost with how complicated the world is getting. We find ourselves caught in the hubbub of what the world is dishing out to us. In the process, we lose sight of what really is important. A lot of us end up being just like everybody else. The world does not need another “everybody else”. What it needs are people who would care; people who—despite wherever they come from—believe that they are here in this world to make it a little bit better.
