I want to change the world. I don't know how to do it. I want to come up with ideas. I want to find creative solutions to problems. I want to organize and collect abilities of smarter people than I and put them into action. Basically, I want to find out what people can do, and use their abilities to solve world problems.
I am convinced that the US government has the power to fix a lot of the main problems we face today. They just don't. Mostly because they would have to spend money and they wouldn't get it back. But lives would be saved. I am convinced that we grow enough food to feed a lot of Africa, if not all. We can run our cars on corn and we have the ability to create and use electric cars. We just don't. We can make things easier, better, faster, more profitable, but that means a lot of money up front and some people, who are earning a lot now, won't be earning so much. It also means lives get saved and the poor aren't so poor anymore.
We can do it, but we won't.
Perhaps if I hire a programmer and a personal Assistant in India, I can start on some of my ideas. I can't afford that now. We'll see what happens later. If through those two people, I can start to generate pull and get people's attention, perhaps they would be willing to donate a few dollars to a cause of their choice and things would happen. Maybe... It's late and I'm tired. It's just that... well... I better start a new paragraph.
I like my job. I have no complaints about the people I work for or work with. It's not difficult and I feel appreciated. The thing is that I feel like I can do more. I feel like I can use what God has given me; an overactive imagination, an ability to grasp ideas quickly, and the ability to think of (and sometimes confuse) many different things at once, to do something that means more than earning money to live on. I don't want to be in anything for the money. If I have to rent the rest of my life, fine. I just want what I do to matter.
I have a problem, though. I'm scatter brained. I think I need someone to help me stay focused and to put my plans into action. I can figure out how things should work, but I start to make them work and I get distracted by something else a few minutes after I start. The problem is, once my brain switches from creative problem solving mode to work mode, the warranty expires.
I can't do this alone.
If anyone reading this wants to change the world, has a skill or a knowledge and is hard working, email me. firstname.lastname@example.org
I can come up with a plan that will get you going to make it happen. I can organize. I just don't have the discipline to carry it out. My brain doesn't seem to function that way.
