Start By Stopping

“Action expresses priorities.”

— Mohandas Ghandi

As college football season stops and election season starts, just a couple questions.

How would the face of poverty or hunger change in the United States if we put in the same amount of time as we put toward politics and sports?

If politics and sports are mostly spectator sports, what would happen if we stopped spectating?

If action expresses priorities and time is money, then does how we spend our time and money reveal our true priorities?

If we really want to solve some of society’s problems, we can start by stopping. We can stop watching politics and sports and start spending our time, money and creativity trying to solve problems.

Just another way to say, get involved. Not only during election season, but during every season.

About Eric Winger

Our perception of time is key to how we use our time. The most fundamental way to change that perception is to give our time. This opens us up to new opportunities and ideas from which we can build to really make a difference. ... Yes, we *do* have time to make a difference!
