Make Small Changes
This year we suggested that small changes can lead to big results.
So how can you use this idea?
For example, you might:
✅ Save Energy
Skip one errand.
Combine two trips into one.
Start your car’s engine after you fasten your seat belt.
Turn off your car’s engine as soon as you park.
Drive a bit slower, coast to red lights, and start easily.
Consider: One less mile per day could save $100 per year.
✅ Be Kind
Smile at a stranger.
Do someone a favor.
Be fully present during a conversation.
Write a Thank You note.
Consider: One act of kindness could change a life.
✅ Touch Nature
Go for a walk outside.
Spend a moment watching a bird. Or a butterfly.
Say “Hello” to a flower. And thank it for being there.
Put your hand on a tree. And connect with the life inside.
Admire the complexity of clouds.
Consider: One visit with nature could heal your heart.
Of course, these are suggestions to move your thinking.
You may have other possibilities.
So pause a moment to reflect on:
“What small change you could make?”
This matters because humanity moves with the flow of small actions.
And thus we can make a difference every day, creating a future we admire.
PS > The comment below captures the essential concept in the post.
We can feel overwhelmed by the enormity of global challenges.
And yet, we can make small changes. These changes then lead to other changes. And over time, we achieve big results.
Thank you Megan!
