Some folks just give in, give up, choose the myopic and self-centric view, opt for pessimistic inertia. Being but one person on a planet populated by 8 billion humans, they take the view that we are but one grain of sand on a very large beach. How can/could we matter? 

On the other hand............

A different kind of folks choose to matter. They work to make themselves, and "things," better. They understand that hope is lovely, but insufficient. Making a better future takes intentional effort. 

MATTERers follow a fairly common and simple recipe. They zealously choose to:

  • Believe - in something bigger than themselves, and constantly seek to clarify and make sense of that grounding-guiding "vision."
  • Share - with others, both likeminded and not, those consequential beliefs.
  • Care - for themselves, for others, for the planet and universe with which we have been blessed.
  • Serve - in many ways, with eyes and hearts outwardly directed.
  • Start - now, in this moment, today, and every day hereafter. 
  • Focus - on their respective spheres of influence, however small or large. 
Yeppers. The key and repeated verb from above is "choose." Now is a good time to start. 

*Warning: There is no end in sight. Bettergetting and Bettermaking are daily disciplines.
