There are a thousand hacking at the branches of evil to one who is striking at the root. – Henry David Thoreau
Challenging quote alert…
It’s so easy to get distracted and focused on all the little trivial things in our lives while ignoring the root cause.
We let selfishness, greed, laziness, and anger win out while we try to keep up with the Joneses.
We argue with others about political differences and complain on Facebox about all the losers.
We shop and spend and adorn ourselves while ignoring a hole in our hearts.
We hack at the branches of the injustices of the world and ignore the root in our own hearts (and of those we care about).
What can you do today to hack at the selfishness in your life?
What can you do today to hack at the consumption obsession?
Let’s get to work on tackling the right end of the problem.
Make it a great day.
PS – You’re pretty great. You are one of a kind that was built for doing and becoming the best version of you. You’re probably much further down the path of working on the right end of the problem than me and I’d love to hear how you did it.
