It's not that hard to make the world a better place

"Passion is in all great searches and is necessary to all creative endeavors."
- W Eugene Smith

Passion, in this case, refers to the intensity with which one pursues an objective.

Some would call it devotion or dedication. Others perseverance.

Any objective that is worth the effort to reach it will require more than passing interest, lipservice or casual paid-by-the-hour effort. That is, it will require the devotion of physical, intellectual and even emotional resources.

What on Earth could be worth all that? Whatever you want to achieve. Anything less may result in failure or getting sidetracked.

When a goal is worth pursuing, detours are inevitable, but quitting means personal failure. Quitting doesn't mean that the goal can't be reached, but that the person trying to get there lacks the fortitude to get the job done.

Regular readers will know that Turning It Around is the best way (the only viable way) to make the world a better place. I have vowed to devote my life to pursuing that goal. OK, so I wrote the book. But I can't change the world myself.

If you are prepared to stop complaining about how bad things are and do something about them, please join me.

There's a whole book to read so that you know what you are doing, why you are doing it and what benefits we can expect when we reach our goal. But it's easy to read and understand. It's in regular people language, despite its academic sounding title. One person calls it a "back porch chat" style.

And no one has to do a great deal. Mostly just tell others about Turning It Around.
