5 Ways To Be The Change You Wish To See

February 21, 2022


You've probably heard the quote, "Be the change you wish to see in the world." It's attributed to Gandhi. Here's why that's interesting: there's no record of him ever saying it. It didn't show up in writing until 26 years after his death, and even then, it wasn't referenced to Gandhi. But here's why that matters: Gandhi epitomized the idea. He owned it. It's not about the quote, it's about the actions. "Being the change" is loving, encouraging, and serving. It's done in life and not on paper. So everyone remembers Gandhi, and no one knows who coined this phrase. This week, let's go be the change we wish to see in the world.

  • Monday - Pass along a little wisdom that you’ve learned from someone else. 
  • Tuesday - Ask someone to tell you about one of their best days ever.
  • Wednesday - Jot a little note of thanks to someone who will be surprised by it.
  • Thursday - Respect others’ schedules, show up on time.
  • Friday - Ask someone you don’t know, “How’s it going?”
