Dream Forward: Solving Problems at the Magnitude They Exist

Our journey to Dream Forward began in 2011, when U.J., a dear friend of our organization, asked us one question: “What are the biggest issues facing humanity?”

Together, we explored the world’s challenges, the world we dream of living in—a world that looks dramatically different than the one we live in today—and the many reasons why it’s so hard to create this. We talked a lot about the barriers to realizing this dream, but the one we spent the most time talking about was fear of failure and the unknown. It’s self-inflicted yet it’s the barrier that we believe is at the core of lack of progress. It’s those who are most courageous and who overcome this fear—from Martin Luther King to Ghandi to Amelia Earhart—who have pushed humankind forward.

Our conclusion: We need to inspire courage, encourage boldness, and squelch the fear that holds us all back—all in an effort to move our dreams forward. The Dream is about the idealism that keeps us going and on the path to solving problems at the magnitude they exist. The Forward is about the actions, the tenacity and the grittiness that will get us there. Dream Forward inspires and reminds us to give ourselves permission to hold onto the dream and act boldly on its behalf.
