Yes!! As I listened to this sometimes humorous sometimes serious conversation between Russel Brandt and Jay Shetty I found myself constantly saying Yes! That is exactly what Onward is talking about this month. That is the connection between the habit of building community and the disposition of empathy. Watch and listen to this short video clip of the conversation and see if you agree. Here are my two favorite quotes from this interview. Thoughts?
Build community: “Collectively and in community, we are powerful. It’s only as individuals that we are very stupid.”
Empathy: “How incredible would it be if we had a planet where everyone was thinking about everyone else.”
Yes, Sir! Now that would be pretty incredible. So grateful to be part of this Onward community that is doing our part to make this happen.
