Think systematically

An enjoyable heuristic I’ve applied lately is how people have responded to the removal of plastic straws.

Removing them is not a panacea for climate change; it’s meant to be a step in the direct direction. People’s habits don’t change overnight, and we know that incremental change is incredibly positive.

Ya know, you crawl before you walk before you run.

It’s about the systematic impact, not one independent move.

So any time I see someone hurr-durring plastic straws, I’m like awrighty – you can barely see past your nose.

What are Quick Thoughts?
