365 Ways to Change the World

Happy New Year everyone!! It has been a strange year with A LOT of change and, I have to admit, I am very happy the world didn’t end in 2012!

My recommendation for today is that you read the book 365 Ways to Change the World.  It is a sophisticated and subversive guide on how to make a difference in our world, one day at a time. There is also a blog/website by the author to accompany it. The book and the posts where published a while ago, but there are still a lot of relevant and useful tips in both.
You watch the news every night. You turn off your television set, disturbed by what you’ve seen and wondering what, if anything, you can do to make a difference.
This is the book you need to get started. You may think that the issues which confront us are so huge, so complicated, so difficult to deal with that it’s hard to believe anything we can do will have a meaningful impact but Michael Norton will prove you wrong. A lot of people doing a lot of little things could have a huge impact.
This book, much like this blog, has an idea-a-day for changing the world. Most are quite simple, can be done from home, and will not take much time. You can make a start whenever you like. Just open the book at today’s date, read, enjoy, be inspired to action – and do something!

So, to 2013 and everything that it will bring! So, whatever your new year’s resolutions are, keep your eyes open for opportunities to make our world a better place!
