Michael’s book tour was taking him to China, up and down the U.S. east coast, and across the country, but he kept at his commitment. Tell me if you don’t hear him smiling in talking about it.
He said it was easy, but many people considering the same action put it off.
His book covers systemic change, focusing on the role of business. I find that his personal action brings in a missing piece of what you can do here and now.
Partly acting here and now achieves something, but individual actions don’t achieve that much, as he points out and we all know.
More importantly, acting here and now leads to acting on bigger, more effective things. People who don’t start little things never reach big, effective things. People who do, do.
Maybe most of all, acting on your values on whatever scale improves your life. When the action take no time or other resources and make you smile, why not?
