“You really can change the world if you care enough.” ~ Children’s rights activist Marian Wright Edelman
Is that all it takes — caring really, really hard? Or is it working 70 hours a week to the exclusion of all other activities? Or is it working smarter, not harder,that really instigates great change?
All of these have been recommended by someone at some point in time, but the fact is, there are some things you just can’t change, no matter how hard you try.
In fact, continuing to beat your head against the wall is… well, not very effective, and pretty painful. So cut it out, would you?
Perseverance and tenacity are only good qualities when the objective you’re working so hard to achieve is actually attainable. There’s a lot in life you just can’t change.
