If there is one thing I cannot stand, it is talk without action. If you say you are going to do something, kindly follow through. If you are involved in something with me, please do not back out and leave me to finish everything, because I will make sure it is done and done well. It would be much nicer (not to mention less stressful) to not have to do it all on my own.
Additionally, if we are contemplating social change, stop talking about the nebulous “we” or “they.” Who is that? What that does do is remove the responsibility from each individual person. Lets stop talking about all of the things that need to happen and all of the things that should be done. Instead, don’t wait for “we” or “they” to act and do something yourself. You. Just one person. You might not have an immediate impact on a global scale, but do you really need to? There is plenty to be done on a local scale. Who knows, you might even inspire people to join you and soon you’d have a movement.
