Impact Trumps Power

Impact Trumps Power March 30, 2015

Our Last Option by Andrew Marin“Current culture war ideology says with correctness comes power. Add on to that the fact that many in today’s power-based culture believe that power is the key factor which influences the masses. However, something more important trumps power: impact.

Having power is one thing. Having the ability to earn high levels of buy-in by the masses who then turn around and tangibly work to influence change within a particular setting or people group is a more important role than the acquisition of power. Power tends to be focused on gaining capital, whereas with influence it is about making a difference. In many situations, power is given, yet impact is more influential than power because it is earned.”
