I meet a lot of entrepreneurs, authors, politicians and all-around good people and if you ask them what their goals are, most will default to a response that they want to change the world. Well, I have news for you. It’s pretty easy to change the world. In fact, here are some things that you can do to change the world right this moment.
- Buy a sandwich and throw it at someone.
- Have a kid
- Wake up and drink a glass of water
- Burn a tire
- Buy a canoe and go fishing
- Take deeper breaths
- Go for a hike and take a rock home with you
In fact, pretty much doing anything will change the world. On day one after being born, you’ve just changed the world and so have your parents. Changing the world is really easy because we all change the world in big ways every single day just by waking up and even if we don’t leave the house, by doing that we’ve changed the world.
How about this. I’m going to stop responding to people saying that I plan on changing the world. Instead, I’m going to say that I’m going to make the world a better place.
In my lifetime, I will assist in making the world a better place and will leave the world having a positive impact in small and big ways because that’s what’s important. Hell, Osama Bin Laden changed the world. I think we can come up with better word choice and goals.
