    Jan 5 2013: Armistral ., in my mind every action I do makes the world a better place, ranging from tiny actions to big ones. I think tying my shoe can make the world a better place if I do it with consciousness, care, skill.

    If you're asking about the big ones, oh, that might take a while. I like to walk, in fact I don't have a car and rarely go anywhere on the bus, so I'm very local. I think walking more makes the world a better place.

    When I'm walking, if I see a big piece of trash in the street, I'll usually pick it up and put it in the nearest trashcan. Or if I see problems in the community, such as a broken streetlight or fire hydrant, I'll find the right person to report it to and get it fixed.

    For five years I've followed an unusual diet, which is living only on milk. Every day I drink between one and two gallons of milk a day, and I don't eat or drink anything else. I've seen many benefits from this diet, and I keep telling people about it so they'll at least know it's a possibility, even if they don't use it. Possibilities, options, make the world a better place.

    I like to think and ask questions. I believe sharing my thoughts and questions, such as on the TED site, makes the world a better place. Often I'll call in to talk radio shows from the audience at home and share my ideas and questions on the air. I believe exchange of ideas and new questions makes the world a better place.

      Jan 5 2013: Awesome Greg, for sure the little things matter as much as the big ones (big ones are just lots of little ones anyway!). I look at my own life in a similar way, all those daily things I do privately and publicly are either better or worse for one and all and I try to make them better.

      If you ever get the desire to exchange those ideas and questions in another format, please consider http://www.wesolver.org as a place to do that, we need everything you have to offer.
