“I alone can’t change the world, but I can cast a stone across the water to create many ripples” Mother Teresa

If an Iphone’s battery dies too quickly and you switch to Android, your loss costs Apple about $10.000. If you work in a supermarket and scare a customer away by being snotty, your employer loses about $50.000 from the store’s ongoing revenue. If a friend becomes obese, it nearly triples your risk of becoming obese yourself. If a nearby friend has ten extra lonely days a year, it will increase the number of lonely days you experience by about three.

We never know where our decisions and actions take us, no matter how small they seem.
