I sit in my office writing a blog post instead of the Halo Party I had planned. The idea had caused excitement when I first had it but no one volunteered to follow through.
I gave them the option to do something constructive. In the end that is all you can do. For some, no amount of goading will get you anywhere.
But the world will not wait for them. It will not wait for you either. Go out and support a community. Sharpen your skills. Success will find success.
In the end, all a person can do when they face Death is say “I tried.”
