Be true to yourself...


It was in the news yesterday that Amazon is encouraging brands to be more environmentally friendly by streamlining their packaging. Imagine that: a giant company trying to do something good, not just for itself, but for the greater community at large. We’ve all gotten countless packages from Amazon and, while seeing many of those boxes less than full, just considered it a problem without consequences or solutions.  Great companies can make money and also do good work, and this example shows there are leaders out there who care about both. Look around at the things you’re responsible for and see how many could be improved: if everyone did that, the world would be a better place. While some of your ideas may be difficult to make happen, the effort might be worth it, and this alone should be worth the struggle. Take time and make the extra effort to see if your ideas could help improve things for the world around you today.
