The follow statement is from Derek Sivers in his awesome 3 minute TED talk on “How to Start A Movement” that I just caught (you can view at http://www.ted.com/talks/derek_sivers_how_to_start_a_movement.html). Not everyone has to, or needs to be a leader. Finding a cause or action to follow and/or believe in is important, it helps to define our own lives and give it more meaning. Building the momentum for a message or movement by bringing others along for the journey is powerful.
About Ron Finley, I love following super cool people who have a positive, no nonsense, worthy message. If you are interested, you can check him out at RonFinely.com and be sure to watch his TED talk.
I have been a long time follower of Jamie Oliver and Alice Waters as well, among others including a number of artists. Would love to hear who you choose to follow.
