It’s so easy to make ourselves and others feel good about us with our theoretical values. “If I had a million dollars I’d donate a percentage.”
Sounds nice. But you have more leverage, power, and influence than you think, and you don’t need to wait for anything else to happen. The option to help others is available right now, on a very small scale.
So if you’re interested in helping people “as soon as” something else happens, maybe practice by helping the very next human you come in contact with.
