Pick yourself

“The batteries in that clock are not working. Somebody should change it.”

Yes, and that person might as well be you.

It’s easy to point out the stuff that doesn’t work.

Government, democracy, climate change, healthcare…

What’s hard is doing the emotional work of putting yourself out there, standing up, standing out, being seen, doing work that might fail.

It’s tempting to sit back and wait for someone else to fix the problem or to clean up the mess.

But picking yourself has never been easier to do.

So, why not you?

What don’t you have that others have?

Because more education, more time, more money, more resources…these are excuses we use to hide.

The challenge isn’t pointing out what’s wrong with the world.

The challenge is to care enough to fix it. To make it better.
