Philip talks with Marco and Carola about (r)evolutions, systems change, taking bold steps and diving deep in order to thrive.
- 🎤 We have to question everything that we do. That is what revolutionaries do.
- 🎤 It is the people who are not included in the central conversation that question why the world is operating the way it is operating. Discomfort spurs deep questioning of the status quo.
- 🎤 When I look around, I actually see very little transformation. We live in a plug-in world where we are mostly adding things to the existing systems.
- 🎤 Our systems are seductive frameworks. The difficulty is that you have to actively work against them, by building different ways of community, support and being.
- 🎤 Dear Future, I’m Ready… to love. Everything starts with love.
