The Magic of Compounding Change

“Imagine that there are just 50,000 vegetarians right now (there are actually millions) and that each of these 50,000 convince just one person to stop eating meat over the next five years. Imagine that those 100,000 convince just one person in the five years after that, and that those 200,000, etc. In fewer than seventy years, we have a vegetarian America, even accounting for population growth. Most of us will do better than influence one person every five years- some of us will be able to open the hearts and minds of hundreds of people every year. The harder we work, the faster we achieve that vegetarian America we're striving toward.”
