My mom often uses the phrase ‘the road to hell is paved with good intentions’. For some people, that comes across as a bit harsh. But, it points to the truth that good intentions don’t amount to much unless they are acted upon.
These days, acting on good intention seems harder than ever. Politics everywhere are going through another epic rough patch. At work, disengagement, anxiety, and burn out are king. The climate is a mess and no one really knows how much longer we’ll be able to survive on Earth. We’ve inadvertently given our minds and attention over to a handful of tech giants that are foxily controlling our behavior and lifestyles without our awareness or consent. Our problems are so big we don’t really know where to start.
