10 years is a long time.
Its hard to even decide what I'm going to do with present issues. 10 years from now I hope to have finished with graduate school and obtained a career that i love. I plan on having my B.A. and Masters completed in Communications, Public Relations and Marketing. I'm halfway to my B.A. so that seems much more than reasonable. If I were called upon to help out in the Tokyo Food Crisis, i would hope my education and experience in the communications field would help me to be able to get the word out to the public about the urgent need for change. I'd use my talents to create campaigns to raise awareness and get people to join in the fight.
Actually when i think about it even more, i hope to have already made a change in the world 10 years from now. I would like to think that I already have the ability to make a change. Volunteering for charity and relief organizations could be a good start. Change should start now. Not 10 years from now. My desire to increase my knowledge will enable me to learn new skills to help me along this path. Networking with people through work and school can build innumerable bridges that can prove helpful in the future. People should think about the tomorrow TODAY to ensure that there will be a future for us to look forward to.
I think you have changed the world for many people. Think of how you have shaped the world for many of your family, friends, and peers. Perhaps this isn't the scale you were imagining, but changing somebodies world for the better is an accomplishment in itself. Continue to persevere towards your goals.
Jack Johnson wrote in a song "But you're so busy changing the world. Just one Smile and you can change all of mine."
I really enjoyed those lyrics, I hope they can mean something to you.
I guess what I want you to think about Brandon is that you have to embrace every small "victory", that is the small changes to a person, a group, a community, and so on. You will find it more rewarding if you accept even the smallest changes as a goal, and eventually all those small changes will lead to a bigger change! Just like the movie "Pay it Forward".
Enjoy the simple things in life,
I'm going to friend you so I can read your next posts more easily! I'm more of a tinkerer and data analyst than an awareness raiser, so I hope to learn a lot from you as Evoke moves forward.
I look forward to hearing from you over the next couple of weeks! Especially in the fields of data analyzing ;)
