Right now I'm only reading a few blogs and one of those is by Gwen Bell. In her most recent post, she pointed readers toward a commencement speech by Tiffany Shlain. Shlain's words made me cry and remember the core lessons I learned at TEDx.
In the speech, Shlain talked about interdependence, doing good work, and dying. She noted, "For centuries we've been declaring our independence, perhaps it's time to finally declare our interdependence."
Right now I'm working on a chapter in my book about community building and Shlain's comment resonated with me on a deep level. And it also left me wondering about you.
How are you connected to your community? What projects are you working on that have the greatest impact? Please share your story in the comments section.
