Stop trying to save the world

Ok, ok, we get it. The world is in trouble. Someone needs to save it.

Relax.

You’re not the only one who knows that the education system is a disaster, that inequality will lead to revolution, that climate change is melting the ice caps.

You don’t need to be the guy that saves the world.

You need to be the guy that saves yourself.

Take care of yourself so you’re not a burden on anyone else. Get a job or start a business. Pay your bills.

Make sure your family is ok. Spend time with your spouse and love your kids.

Make sure your community is ok. Get involved in the school and the neighbourhood watch.

Make sure your country is ok. Vote, protest, support the independent media.

When all is safe on the home front, you can worry about saving the world.

Until then, save yourself.
