You can't boil an ocean!

This topic is about, you can't boil an ocean. What do I mean by that?

Very often, I hear people complain about the things you cannot change. And I remember one of my mentors used to always recite the prayer of serenity and the prayer of serenity. I can't remember the exact words, but it goes something like, God, give me the power to accept the things I cannot change, to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference, because not everything you can change in your life. There are certain things in your life, that you are just not in the power to change.

I very often hear people complain about the things that they have zero control over, complain about the weather, or complain about the politics or complain about the economics. Let's face it, you aren’t going to change your country's economics, you aren’t going to change your country's politics and you're probably not going to change the weather either. But there are certain things that you do have control over. And mostly, you have control over you. You have control over what you do, and how you do it. So that's where the title comes in. You can't boil an ocean, even if you want to, it would be very difficult to boil the whole ocean. It's because it's out of your control.

But instead, you could boil a pot of water in your house, couldn't you? You could make a difference to your life first, you could make a difference maybe to your family's life, maybe to your community, or whatever. Do you get what I'm saying? The idea behind this whole thing is about doing the things you can instead of complaining about the things you can't control.

When it comes to your business, when it comes to your company's culture, you can influence your company and even sometimes the whole industry at some level, but it always have to start from you. I mean, you can't just come like, “Ah, the industry is bad. Ah.” The only thing you can do is start doing something by yourself. And is it guaranteed that you will change the industry? Is it guaranteed that you will change your company? No, it's not guaranteed. But if you're not going to do anything, then for sure nothing will change.

There was another quote, something along the lines for the evil to prevail, all that is necessary is that good people do nothing because if you don't do anything about it, then definitely the problem will persist. But if you at least start with yourself and you start changing it, you start having a positive impact even it's that small, maybe your small impact will influence another two people and maybe those other two people will influence another four people and so on. And maybe you will cause that ripple effect that eventually will change your team, eventually will change your company, eventually will change your industry and maybe the entire world, but don't start from changing the world. Start from changing you.
