It is so simple to influence, share and generate change in this amazingly connected world. After watching KONY 2012 I realized we all can make whatever difference or impact that motivates us, regardless of the magnitude. Reaching one new person each day or week can create a staggering network of awareness within one year. Reaching one person can create staggering awareness within one life! If you are a Facebook user, how often have you “liked” a comment or status? Imagine something you believe in, something that you are passionate about, something that you want to share. Isn’t that a better way to use Facebook or any other form of social media?
Watching The Lorax this weekend with my kids conveyed a similar message. The message was simple and powerful and was only one word – “unless”.
“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing’s going to get better. It’s not.”
Last week I made a slight change in my daily routine. I attempted to simplify my day by watching no television. Instead of lying on the coach and watching TV till I could barely keep my eyes open, I had more meaningful conversations with my wife, I read that book that was staring at me for the past two months on my bedside table and I reflected about what I was passionate about and I began blogging again. I also got out of bed this evening struck with an idea for a website called telloneperson.org. I registered it. 🙂
