Change the World from the Comfort of Your Own Home
on February 26, 2018
Have you ever wanted to make a difference in the world but are just too busy? Infinity Stone found herself in that same situation but decided to do something about it regardless. In 40 Day Shift, she demonstrates how anyone can change the world from the comfort of his or her own home.
I began "Shift" with a bit of trepidation—forty days seemed too brief a commitment to shift one’s perspective let alone make a significant impact to the millions of people in need. However, each of the forty days helped me to see the bigger picture: we are at the dawn of a new age in which each of us, through the power of the internet, can magnify our footprint. At the press of a button, we can help prison inmates turn puppies into PTSD dogs, help correct a child’s cleft palate, combat human trafficking or provide loans to social entrepreneurs that when repaid are recycled to help other entrepreneurs.
As Infinity’s reach grew day by day, she described each charity in detail, discussed her reasons for donating to it and then offered a link for reference. As I read, I learned a bit about Infinity, an insurance salesperson who works long hours but always takes time to care for her physical and mental health--an open-minded and non-judgmental woman who, on the rare occasions where she offers advice, does it without expectation.
40 Day Shift opened my mind to a world of possibilities and to the fact that there is nothing that stands in the way of me or anyone else mirroring what Infinity Stone did. Even better, with links to more than forty incredible charities, readers can use her book as a springboard.
I highly recommend 40 Day Shift, a quick read that inspires, uplifts and will move you stop making excuses and start improving the world through the power of the internet. Thank you, Infinity, for recording your journey and lighting the way. I hope that you will continue what you have started and encourage others to do the same.
