5 Ways To Make Everyone's Life Better This Week

August 24, 2020

Better vs. Best

The best version of what we can accomplish is often what keeps us from becoming better. It's easy to enter into a fictional scenario of our best imaginable self vs. a real choice in front of us that looks less heroic. Choosing to run into a collapsing building to save a loved one? That imaginary choice is easy! And, very satisfying. Choosing to help someone out at work so they can go grab a snack (check out Tuesday!)... that real choice can be hard. The simple helps this week are simple like always. But that doesn't mean they are easy. This week, let's choose to make the real world better even if it doesn't match the "best" we'd imagine. It's how we can make the world a better place!
