When you throw a rock – even a small pebble – in a pond, it has an effect. And that effect goes beyond the point of impact where the rock hits the water. Every rock or pebble thrown in the pond also creates ripples and you never know how far those ripples might travel. So don’t underestimate the potential ripple effect of even a small action that you might commit to doing. So think about throwing a rock, a pebble… or maybe a boulder in the pond. If enough of us do it, our rocks might actually start to build upon each other and become stepping stones leading us to new heights as a profession. – Sareena Hopkins, Canadian Council for Career Development
