We no longer live in the era of the "Hero Scientist" who, as an individual, discovers something that changes humanity's course. We are clusters of human beings, tribes, who contribute toward the creation of things that benefit each other. This idea is very easy for me, because I'm built to be a team-oriented person, but it's also something that I struggle with, when I know I need to depend on someone else to rise to the occasion and have to fend off the fear of not being in control.

I love this video:


And I really love this article posted on Cracked, today. It's timely, considering recent news items and personal experiences both as an individual, and within my tribe:

(My personal favorite is #2 - What You Are Inside Only Matters Because of What It Makes You Do.) I hope I can find a way to make take some of these ideas in this article and continue down my path of self-improvement. Boy, it really is easy to just sit back and take it easy, sometimes, though!

Hope everyone is having a lovely holiday season!
