FAQ

Who are you?

I’m this guy.

 

You aren’t some big business or organization?

Nope. It’s just me and my computer.

 

Why should I listen to you?

Because I’ve been studying the world’s problems for ten years. My scholarly research has been published in academic books and journals, and featured in The Washington PostThe Huffington Post, and The Chronicle of Higher Education, among others.

 

Why are you doing this?

Because I’m sick of all the nastiness, divisiveness, and dysfunction out there.

Aren’t you?

 

What do you stand for?

I stand for peace, prosperity, health, happiness, love, joy, justice, goodwill, and all that other good stuff.

I’m opposed to conflict, prejudice, victimization, oppression, injustice, corruption, hatred, and suffering.

Aren’t you?

 

Yeah, but…

Look. This project is more about action than beliefs. You and I don’t have to agree on everything in order for you to benefit from making this resolution.

Hold yourself to the highest standards, use your best judgment, and do what you think is right.

But the important thing is to do it. We can’t afford four more years of passive complaining, snarking, and bemoaning.

 

Okay, but how do I make the world a better place?

First, don’t get overwhelmed. You don’t have to fix everything overnight.

Second, sign up for the resolution. Studies show that people who are public about their resolutions are more likely to stick to them. You may feel inspired now, but will you still feel that way in two years?

Third, share this campaign with other people. Movements start when people realize they’re less alone and more powerful than they previously thought. The more people are behind this resolution, the more likely it’ll positively influence our public conversations about our problems.

Finally, follow this campaign on social media. I’ll be posting tips and other content soon.

 

How often and what are you going to email me about if I sign up?

I’ll remind you of your resolution, and share links to cool content about how you can make a difference.

No more than once per week, though. Believe me, I hate getting bombarded by emails as much as you do. You can read about this site’s privacy policy here.

 

Okay, I’ve signed up. What’s next?

I’m going to share more of what I’ve learned during my years of study and analysis about how to really create social change. Stay tuned.
