Sometimes we forget that world-changing innovations very often begin in the quiet corners of history. In our efforts to find the “best story”, we sometimes neglect to acknowledge the years of un-flashy hard work that lead to great success.
All too often, we also neglect the accomplishments of all kinds of people in our retelling of history. In doing so, we remove important heroes from the past that could inspire a new generation of thought leaders from diverse backgrounds.
We are fortunate to live in a time where the stories of great people, once forgotten or condensed to a sentence in the history books, are being told and celebrated!
