5 Steps Toward Changing The World

July 30, 2021

Lao Tzu said something two and a half millennia ago that remains equally true today: "A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step." Whether it's a geographic destination or a personal goal, the whole journey is ...big. It's too big to think about all at once. That's a major contributor to the stress we all face every day. How can we get it all done when it sometimes feels hard just to put one foot in front of the other? That's where our wise, ancient friend solved the riddle. It's that first step that changes everything. In fact, that first step is the only way anything can change at all. Anyone can take a single step, and this week we can do it, too. Each of our Simple Helps this week is the first step towards making the world a better place.
