You don't gotta do it...

Life is not something you've got to do. Life is something you get to do.

You have a privileged place in the history of the planet. Access to tools, knowledge, friends and partners worldwide, is laid at your feet. For tens of thousands of years, humanity has struggled incrementally to bring this explosion of possibilities to your party.

You have the ability to contribute. I'm not suggesting you should build skyscrapers or lay fiber optics in the Arctic, unless you really want to. I'm suggesting smaller fixes. Self enterprise level contributions.

At the meta level, seems likely that distributing the ability to provide solutions over an ever expanding range of contributors would make the whole affair more stable. Call me old fashioned, but there's just something about economic stability and sustainability that still appeals to me.

There are a lot of problems out there. You can make contributions to these problems in many ways that can also build enterprise into your life at the same time.

You don't gotta do it. You get to do it.
