I just re-watched Simon Sinek's TED talk "How Great Leaders Inspire Action" which I recommend for every leader would-be leader regardless of your field.
In this video he talks about "Something called the law of diffusion of innovation, if you don't know the law, you know the terminology. The first 2.5% of our population are our innovators. The next 13.5% of our population are our early adopters. The next 34% are your early majority, your late majority and your laggards. The only reason these people buy touch-tone phones is because you can't buy rotary phones anymore. (Laughter). We all sit at various places at various times on this scale, but what the law of diffusion of innovation tells us is that if you want mass-market success or mass-market acceptance of an idea, you cannot have it until you achieve this tipping point between 15 and 18 percent market penetration, and then the system tips."
It got me wondering about how many empaths are out there. I've seen suggestions at 5-10% of the population. Then again, we know that consciousness is rising rapidly, if not exponentially, right now. Empath self-awareness is growing fast. What sort of a world will we be living in when we make up 15-18% of the world's population?
