Wanting impact goes back to the question of why we are alive. Often we answer it by saying whatwe want to do in life. To grow, to learn, to experience, etc. Counting the people we impact, there is another way to think of this. You can focus on the impact of what you do rather than on what you do. Once you do that, you might see that you want to do things with the biggest impact.

My generation of people, Gen Y, wants to have a big impact on the world even before they figure out what they want to do. And that is a good thing. The scale of what you do is probably more important than what you do. Someone who gives wonderful haircuts in their town makes less of an impact than someone who opens a successful national haircutting chain. You can scale your vision to fit within your city, or your can scale the world to fit your vision. That is the startup way.
