September 27th is National Voter Registration Day in the United States. As such, I could list off a bunch of information about the current political landscape, the Electoral College, or democracy in general just to convince you that the system is worth your time. But I'm not going to do that. I'm not going to even talk about the candidates. I just want to talk about taking action.
Yes, all the systems, processes, and entities above could be stronger. But something being broken doesn't mean it is hopeless.
I watch entrepreneurs beat the odds day after day to improve and fix the broken systems, industries, and entities in the world. They do so using only the scarce tools and resources provided to them. So, why is that they can do what others can't? It's simple. It's because they take action. They take action instinctively, again and again, day after day, without hesitation.
A handful of people who we call entrepreneurs take action and change the world over time. So imagine if everyone seized each day and took action without hesitation in their own lives. I am not going to ask you to register to vote. Nor am I here to tell you that need to vote on November 4th. Instead I am going to ask you to take action, in order to solve the problems in the world that you see. If there are tools at your disposal, don't squander opportunity and watch them waste away. Use the opportunities in your life to make the world better.
In other news, here are some tools I happened to find on the cyber; I mean Internet:
- TurboVote: Sign up to receive election reminders, get registered to vote, & apply for your absentee ballot.
- Vote.org: Everything you need to vote.
- VotePlz: Get ready to vote.
- And many more!
See what I did there? 😉. Hope it helps!
