Use your Skills, Experience and Imagination

It is up to our own imagination to decide what to do. Many websites offer similar lists and ideas that encourage a person to get involved. Each action taken is heroic. 

Make a Plan

One way to ensure that you complete the activities you set out to do is to develop a simple schedule and plan. Many people find they are more likely to achieve results when they make a “to-do list”. There is something about seeing a list in a notebook or on a screen that urges a person to act. It seems more official and real. 


Once you complete the task, you can cross it off. Over time, your list might look very impressive. These small, heroic actions can be a great source of encouragement. I sometimes tell others of my plan and ask them to check in on me to ensure I follow through. These people keep me encouraged and accountable. This can also be a two-way arrangement, whereby both parties agree to ensure the other achieves his goals.
