And then a rebel quickly rises up in me and I am the louse in the fur. I have been in conflict with many a boss because I asked awkward questions and could not resign myself to simply doing what was asked. In short, I have an authority problem. However, because I was unable to channel this energy in the right direction, to deploy it in an effective manner, it has for a long time, apart from a mountain of juicy anecdotes, provided me with little and, above all, cost me a lot.
The trigger that awakens the rebel in me is often about how people are treated. Is what we do really people-worthy, with respect and with an eye for the potential and value of everyone. Or are people reduced to things or numbers because it is easier economically, politically or for other reasons. The gap between the beauty I see in nature, of which humans are a part, and the way we so often treat the planet, each other and ourselves on a day-to-day basis concerns me.
