Design your own utopia and be a quietly positive influence on the world

One phrase I think back to is from Derek Sivers, author of Anything You Want, one of my absolute favourite business books. He writes, when you make a company, you make a utopia. It’s where you design your perfect world. I love this idea of designing your own utopia – in business and in life. We can change more than we think. We’re not the powerless authors of our own lives that we sometimes believe we are.
