Question on Quora:
How do I get out of the “nobody cares” mindset?
There’s an old children’s book lying around out there, entitled (I think) Buzz, Buzz, Buzz. It starts out with a bee stinging a farmer, then the farmer getting angry and taking it out on his…mule? Wife? I don’t remember. But it goes on, with each angry/annoyed animal/person causing a bigger problem as the domino effect continues.

On the flip side, one little action from a seemingly insignificant creature can lead to wonderful consequences.
Somebody cares about what you say. Somebody cares about what you do. Because whatever you say or do will have at least a small impact on somebody else. That impact may cause that other person to have an impact on somebody else, and that next impact may be bigger than the one you originally made – without realizing it.
The ripple effect is alive and well, whether we’re aware of it or not. And even if you will never meet the people whom you ultimate affect by your thoughts, words, and behavior, they care. Because their life was impacted.
The question is, will you cause a positive ripple or a negative ripple? Think about it, because the answer will impact more people than you ever realize.
That’s how you get out of the “nobody cares” mindset.
