Make One Change Project

It's New Year's Eve and for most of us, that means it is a time for reflection, to look back on the past year and take stock of what we have achieved - or what is more frequently the case, what's left to be achieved.

It's ironic that in a world obsessed with making everything twice as fast as it was last week, it's getting progressively easier to say - "I just don't have the time".  In truth, we have exactly the same number of hours in a day that were given to Helen Keller, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci and Albert Einstein.
So why do we claim to be far too busy?

I'm sure each and every one of us has a valid reason for being constantly connected to our laptop, iPad and iPhone - but when it comes to blind copying yourself on your own emails, just to stay 'in the loop' - it's probably taking it a step too far.

It's all about choice. Some of us have a choice and some of us don't have that choice. My intention with this site was to always offer a choice. An alternative to 'sorting rubbish in the right coloured bins'.

While some of us live in a world where this is a good idea.

This year, instead of making a list of changes that you would like to see in your own life.
Make a choice to change one thing in someone else's life.

"What we do for ourselves, dies with us. What we do for others and the world remains and is immortal."
