The Change You’re Trying to Make

It’s worth reminding yourself what you’re trying to do. What the change is you’re trying to make.

Short-term emergencies arise every day. It can be hard to remember your long-term mission.

Soon enough, the short-term emergencies become the thing you do.

Is this why you started?

To be the person who waits for an issue to arise and then taking care of it?

The short-term metrics are the ones which are easy to measure. Views, likes, sales. These are good. But it’s worth remembering if you can pay money to boost a metric, it’s probably not the change you’re trying to make.

Instead of waiting for mistakes to fix, get out there and make some. That’s how change happens.
