The Data Is In, We Have Less Than 20 Years To Fix Our Global
Problems Or The World As We Know It Will Come To An End
If you listen to the pundits and prognosticators, the world is poised on the edge of a knife …
- Scientists have concluded that Climate Change is the biggest threat to our survival
- Politicians have concluded that Terrorism is the biggest threat to our survival
- Generals have concluded that War is the biggest threat to our survival
- Doctors have concluded that a Pandemic is the biggest threat to our survival
- Economists have concluded that Overpopulation is the biggest threat to our survival
And what do all these doomsday scenarios have in common? Us. They are all manmade problems that have escalated with the speed of a bullet over the last 100 years. Estimates are that by the year 2035, we will be at a tipping point where our efforts will no longer make a difference.
So now the question is, “What are we going to do about it, if we are going to survive?” We need to make a significant change in our approach to these issues. We can no longer rely on governments, corporations or religious leaders to save us. Whatever we are going to do, we need massive numbers of people around the world on-board, and we need to start now.
The Karma Constitution seeks to unite people from all around the world to act for a common cause with one long-term goal: The survival of the planet. The Constitution forms the foundation of Planned Acts Of Kindness, a global social responsibility program where each day people around the world wake up, and on their cell phones and on their computers, there’s a new planned activity they can do with their family, friends, co-workers and community.
Imagine, millions of people around the world doing the same activity on the same day, generating a tremendous amount of positive energy and action around the world. And that’s the key, education is not enough to pull us out of our death spiral, we have to take action on what we learn. And to be successful in the long run, we have to have these four key elements:
1) We have to have the desire to turn it around;
2) We have to have the determination to turn it around;
3) We have to be coachable, we have to be willing to listen and learn; and
4) We have to take action on what we learn, and follow a game-plan even though the path may be difficult.
And when people need to take action over a longer time-frame on a particular issue, there is the “Cause of the Month,” program because some things are too important for just one day.
The Karma Constitution and Planned Acts of Kindness are the creation of Lyle Benjamin, Executive Director of 16 Things Kids Can Do, a non-profit educational organization that works for the betterment of kids, people, and the planet through workshops, books, programs and activities designed to help people lead happier, healthier, more successful lives.
In order to get people motivated and engaged over the long-term, Benjamin created The Karma Club, where people can level up each month based achieving milestones in different PAK (Planned Acts of Kindness) tasks. When members level up, they automatically become eligible for that level’s rewards given away each day for a month, beginning on the first of each month.
If you’re unhappy with the direction your community, your country or the world is heading, you need to become part of the solution: Take the first step now by becoming a member and help spread the message on your social network for people to check out PlannedActsofKindness.Org as it works to make the world a better place to live … one PAK at a time.
Take the initiative, become an activist, and “Viva la Revolucion!” Like the PAK T-shirt says, “If you’re not part of the solution, then get the Hell off my planet!” #ItsMyPlanet
