A few minutes ago, I deleted a few versions of this post that I had struggled to complete. I’ve now realized that I was simply trying to say too much and so I think it’s best to let the core focus of this post do most of the talking.

And that core focus is simple: how we can all make a difference in this world.

Recently, I was asked by the mighty decent human being who is Raam Dev, to participate in an idea of his, a collaborative project aimed at inspiring people to change the world by making small changes in their own lives.

The project is called “Small Ways to Make a Big Difference” and it came into existence as a result of Raam’s current life-changing travel experiences throughout India, Vietnam and Nepal. After observing first-hand the suffering, inequality and injustice that plagues much of our planet, Raam found himself asking the same question over and over again – how does one change this situation?

In short, this project is the start of his answer, or more correctly, it is the beginning of his mission to foster a global community of individuals with a shared interest in ways to “live more sustainable, to live happier and healthier, to get more out of life, to inspire and share, to reconnect with our true selves, to be a leader, to exist more intelligently.”

Small Ways to Make a Big Difference” offers 160 of those ways, all of which were contributed by a diverse collection of interesting people with ideas to share, including the wonderful minds behind such blogs as Uncornered Market, The Life Thing, Live Collar Free, Travels of Adam, Live Richly, Vagabond Quest, Thrilling Heroics, Migrationology, JetSetCitizen and of course, Raam Dev himself.

Whether it’s a way to improve how we work, play, love, eat, treat the planet or interact with others, each idea can help us align our lives with that vision of a more harmonious, peaceful world that is forever present in our minds.

Perhaps the material in this book can act as a good old-fashioned kick in the butt or maybe it can provide an eye-opening wake-up call or even a detailed guide to help alter the way we live. Whatever it’s potential for each individual, I am confident that nothing but rewards await any reader of such inspiring information.

There’s no nonsense at all involved here. The result of Raam’s work is available to absolutely anyone and it doesn’t cost anything.

So I hope that you’ll have a look at his project and spread the word to all those you think may be interested. And let us never lose our focus on trying to make the world a better place to live!
