Think Small

by | Dec 14, 2023 | Blog | 0 comments

Sometimes the complex problems facing our world (both local and international) seem overwhelming and impossible to solve.

That doesn’t keep an overachiever from myself like trying.
I’m convinced that if I just read the right book or join another board, I can magically find the solution and fix the situation.
It rarely works the way I envision.
Right about the time I feel like giving up and throwing in the towel, I run into a bit of wisdom that shifts my perspective and gives me hope.
This week it came from one of my all-time favorite authors David Brooks:

“I’ve come to believe that the quality of our lives and the health of our society depends, to a large degree, on how well we treat each other in the minute interactions of daily life.”

It’s a good reminder that small gestures can change the world.
