In one of my college professors’ offices, I noticed an upside down map of the world.
“Why do you have an upside down map of the world on your wall?” I asked.
“It’s there so you will ask that question” he said. “I want to invite people to challenge their assumptions and look at the world differently. After all, who decided that the map had to be the other way in the first place?”
In less than 60 seconds that day, I learned the most profound lesson of my four-year college career:
Challenge assumptions. Stir curiosity. Do work that makes people ask “why is it like that?” That’s how we create change.
