Practice what you preach. Doing so is tough. Admitting this is not just humbling but also reassuring.
To obsess over perfection stalls us to take those steps we need to take to do what aligns with our values.
So, pick a challenge, take a pledge. Take your time. Learn and apply. Take inspiration if you are stuck. Take the no-straw challenge for instance. Watch Pooja Navale take the challenge and inspire others.
It’s alright, we are not perfect. Someone wise once said perfection is the enemy of good.
If you forget, remind yourself again and pick up where you left.
Not sure where to begin? Here’s a great resource from OneWorldWeek – Living-for-One-World-pledges with plenty of challenges.
Find out what environmental issues we are facing today. Prioritize. Prioritizing can be difficult.
