through a door,
but you can nudge a single person

I’m not quite sure what I was thinking about when I wrote this. Sometimes I just write stuff down and it seems crystal clear to me in the moment, then when I look back later I’m baffled. I suppose in retrospect I’d have to declare that this is about leadership. Caveat, here I’m talking about good leadership. We all know that the worst kind of leadership is perfectly capable of getting a crowd to do almost anything.
