Expanding the scope of our mission
We are not superheroes. There are so many grand challenges today that if we try solving them all alone, we either fail at doing anything at all or burn ourselves out.
It takes a lot of sober discernment to understand our limits and to know our niche. However, there could be times when we are granted a rare opportunity to go beyond our initial scope. Maybe it’s due to luck – having extra capacity at a very opportune time.
But to sustainably scale our reach, we must rely on building coalitions and designing ecosystems of support.
