You may be able to tell by now . . .
I’m a bit of a perfectionist.
Okay, and an idealist.
This has pros and cons, of course.
One of the cons is that I often forget that most people don’t care.
Most people just want to clock in and clock out.
They want to watch the game on the weekends and see the new Avengers movie.
They want to have good food, a big house, and a nice car.
Most people don’t think about how many other people on the planet need their help right now.
But not you.
And the biggest advantage?
Just by caring, you have set yourself apart.
You are on a completely different track.
If it doesn’t seem like it yet, just remember that exponential curves look a lot like linear curves early on.
And then, bang. It’s not even close.

2 Minute Action
You have a bajillion ways to take action on caring, today.
Here are 3:
- Look someone straight in the eye and tell them you appreciate them.
- Leave a note for a co-worker or partner who could use a smile.
- Finally, say “yes” and donate an extra freaking dollar to St. Jude when you checkout at the grocery store.
It’s a dollar, people.
Love is action. Action makes a difference.
Let’s make a difference, today.
