Life is a process. We are a process. The universe is a process.
- Anne Wilson Schaef
Noting small changes helps to:
- strengthen our belief that change is possible and happening
- builds a sense of self-efficacy
- takes away the overwhelming feeling that the whole problem needs to be changed now
- helps us focus, be present and slow down
"[...] the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes 'Awww!' "
— Jack Kerouac (On the Road)
