This morning I picked a card saying “everyone has the power to affect the direction of an organization“. And in my mind that “organization” immediately became humanity as a whole.
How many times we feel powerless before the big challenges humanity is facing. From climate change to inequality, from poverty to wars.
Yet, we often do nothing even when we care because we feel powerless.
What can I do? I’m just a person, it won’t change anything. It’s our leaders’ fault, they are the one who should do something.
And then, while I was thinking about all of this, a thought came up from nowhere.
There is no such thing as doing nothing.
In some way, what we do or don’t do today will contribute to shaping the world of tomorrow.
If we are in this world, we are part of the game of life, and we can’t call ourselves out. We can stand there, or we can actively play. It doesn’t matter for the game, we are in. Together.
