“The worst thing you can do is nothing”

“In any situation, the best thing you can do is the right thing; the next best thing you can do is the wrong thing; the worst thing you can do is nothing.” Theodore Roosevelt.

 Teddy Roosevelt got it this one exactly right.  He also said, in the same vein,  “Do what you can with what you’ve got where you are.”.  Doing something is so much better than doing nothing almost all the time.  I can’t stand the song whose lyrics say “we’re waiting on the world to change”.  Hogwash.  Stop waiting on the world to change and do something to change the world.

Mahatma Gandhi said “Whatever you do may seem insignificant, but it is most important that you do it.”   Margaret Mead said “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world.  Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”

Teddy Roosevelt, Mahatma Gandhi and Margaret Mead were all right on the money.
