how to save the world

Posted on: February 4, 2011

So many people I know have told me that when they were young, they wanted to change the world. As if it were their personal responsibility.

But, as they got older… they got jaded. Saw more and more things wrong with it, or perhaps others struggling to make a difference and only doing so much.

Might this be you?

The world still needs changing, and it still needs agents of transformation. What? Are you going to just wait for someone else to do your work for you?

You came here for a reason. No one else can do exactly what you can do. No one.

Action: Even if you haven’t thought about it for decades, think back to your youth. Remember an unfulfilled dream. Feel if it still resonates today, and follow up on it. And if it doesn’t… then watch or read the news. See what pisses you off. And do something.

Remember – one small shovelful at a time will indeed move mountains.
