It is time to roll up our sleeves and get dirty!

No, I am not kidding nor am I playing around. We are getting more creative, more humanitarians, more  philanthropistic, more inspirational, more giving and yet we continuously fail to work together. We fail to recognize the needs by projecting only our wants especially when it comes to WHAT we give and HOW we give it . Unfortunately, this fails to recognize that we are not all equals, we are not facing problems in the same way and we do not have the same resources and knowledge that comes with it.

A natural disaster hits Japan and it is making its way to touch more lives. When some are trying to figure out how to cope with the catastrophic turn of events, the majority on this planet is not even aware something has happened. We all don’t have to worry, but we all must to be aware. Ignorance is what stopping us from working together. Ignorance is what blocking our infrastructure to redevelop and adapt to changes as changes occur. We ALL seem to have figured it out and yet NONE know how to make things better. Many have great ideas and few succeed to leave a dent when it comes to making changes. Vision is a beautiful dream which does not seem to find its permanent place in reality. There is always a price tag that many can’t afford. Lack of collaboration in the modern world is sickening.  Objectivity is almost unheard of and here we are existing living in the 21st century. Talk is cheap, but it’s all I got. I don’t have the means nor do I have the “background” nor do I have the “substantial knowledge” (I am still too young at 25) on how to make my vision work. Not yet at least, but I am working on it. Patience is a virtue and I am running low on coffee.

“Would you like me to give you a formula for success? It’s quite simple, really. Double your rate of failure. You are thinking of failure as the enemy of success. But it isn’t at all. You can be discouraged by failure or you can learn from it, So go ahead and make mistakes. Make all you can. Because remember that’s where you will find success.” – Thomas J. Watson
