I was watching one of my social media feeds recently. Folks were expressing their sorrow with the natural disasters in Puerto Rico. And their frustration about the Virgin Islands and areas which didn’t get much coverage.
I felt their pain.
But I’m an entrepreneur. We take action when we see problems. So I got off social media. Gathered some supplies. Found a drop off center. And kept listening to the media for other ways I could help.
I’m not trying to brag here. I share this story because I want you to be inspired to take action.
Rather than complaining about how things should be or feeling overwhelmed, take action. Do something. Take small steps that fit into your wallet and your calendar.
I’m not sure if my supplies will end up in the hands of those who need it the most. Or if bigger problems will change.
But I know if I sit around and complain, nothing will get done. So I’d rather take my chances and take action. A small step towards a solution.
