With help from some surprising footage, Derek Sivers explains how movements really get started. (Hint: it takes two.)

“Leadership is overglorified…. It was really the first follower that transformed the lone nut into a leader. So, as we’re all told that we should be leaders, that would be really ineffective. If you really care about starting a movement, have the courage to follow and show others how to follow. And, when you find a lone nut doing something great, have the guts to be the first one to stand up and join in.”
