During January, I will be posting (tentatively) one post every day as part of the #bloganuary challenge
Today’s Prompt: How are you changing the world?
This is a tough and weird question. When I first read it my first thought was: I’m not. But then I stopped for a second and realized this does not have to be a “how are you changing the world in a Malala Yousafzai kind of way”. We are all changing the world all the time. Are doing that in a meaningful/ impactful way? Probably not. But it’s change nonetheless.
I’m pretty sure I won’t be the person who comes up with a revolutionary change in the mobile apps world. But a small change I make to the WooCommerce app might impact some users in a positive way.
I recycle, I work from home (so I don’t drive as much as I would if I was going to and from an office), I try to keep my showers short, I use biodegradable detergent and all that. Will this make a difference? No, because the ones who should be worrying about the environment are not. But I try to do my part.
So, what I mean is, we are changing the world if we consider Heraclitus’ premise that “No man ever steps in the same river twice, for it’s not the same river and he’s not the same man”. Small changes. Simply trying to leave things a bit better than when you found them. The whole ” be the change you wanna see in the world” idea.
But if this was meant to be about impactful change, the answer is I am not changing the world and I’m ok with that.
