power - quantity and quality
Power is often thought of in terms of strength, magnitude and the ability to sometimes even dominate. In all candor, I've personally thought of power as my ability to influence or have an impact on a group of people. This thinking tends to be about Quantity. In other words, the more people I impact or influence, the greater my power. I suppose there is truth in that.
But what about Quality? There is power in the ability to support, help or simply be present for one person. Consider the potential impact of spending unlimited time, caring deeply and being focused on the well-being of just one other person. That too can change the world.
It's not one vs. the other. There are moments for both. Choose wisely.
