IF not me, then who? If not now, then when?
This quote is overwhelming. It is also one of the most important mental models I use.
I use it as a loop.
Not to inspire the big things, but to inculcate a commitment to the little things.
A trash can in the middle of street? Stop and move it to the side of the road.
The paper towel is empty? Stop and change the roll.
The dish is on the counter? put it away.
Anyone who knows me personally, knows I live at the edge of what I can possibly accomplish in a short time period. It is not always perfect and I don’t always adhere to these words.
But more and more, they influence small actions every day.
