    I was talking with my brother about this recently. I said, no one ever sees themselves as part of the first chapter. We all drag our collective yesterday’s like an anchor. Both individually and as a society. Be here, now. Chop wood, carry water. Or, shit fire and save the matches. Whatever works. We are here now, let’s make this ours.

    Be the change that makes the world better. Think of a good future, and make it happen. Dont let anyone tell you what it means. Figure it out and follow through with fearless relentless courage

    pretend you are in a better situation. say you are right in the beginning of this golden age. now go to work and do your job with this mindset. is pretty much what it says.

    We are in the early days of a better world. Murder and violent crime rates are half of what they were 30 years ago (in the US specifically but generally, with some exceptions, worldwide). the number and death rates of wars is way down. The only thing that makes it seem worse today is the fear mongering of the media. My Dad was born in a bomb shelter in London in 1940 during the Blitz. Are things now better or worse? A president who would take climate change seriously would help but thatll have to wait till the next guy.

    This reminds me a bit of pacifist folk lore. A peacenik is giving a talk to a bunch of people. At the end, someone pipes up and says: "Of course world peace is good. If everyone were peaceful, then I too would be peaceful. But we live in a violent world!" The peacenik replies: "So, you have a mind to be the last peaceful person? As for me, I would like to be among the first."

    I feel like "Live as if you live in the early days of a better world" speaks more to me not just in work but in relationships and life in general.

    You dont though. You live in the last days of a dying world, unless you goddamned do something about it. Acting like you live in the early days of an emerging utopia is exactly how Boomers got us where we are.

    This is terrible. It assumes that we DON'T live in the early days of a better world. "A better world is possible." There you go.
