Innovation vs. Impact vs. Influence

In these days of impact and innovation — especially social impact and innovation — it’s worth asking some old questions.

Is innovation always and everywhere good?

Is it wanted? (Do the people you’re “disrupting” welcome the disruption?)

Where’s the line between “scaling impact” and simply imposing your “solution” on more people?

What if, instead of trying to interrupt, disrupt, or impact people, we simply sought to influence them by our own good example and let them change their own lives as they see fit?
