Making Big Change... One Flat Tire at a Time

by Brian McDermott on 12/12/12

It can be daunting to think about all that needs to change -- in individual jobs or businesses, the economy, global politics, or even in our families -- to make life a little better. A couple of lessons worth considering:

  • Focus on things within your realm of influence.
  • Pick a single thing you can do to "Be the change you want to see," as Gandhi taught. Start there and see what unfolds.
Does it work?

This 3-minute video from CBS' Steve Hartman, is one story that says it does. It's about a good Samaritan who thinks the world is too full of anger, distrust and fear, and he believes he can change it one flat tire at a time.
