What’s holding you back?

The Artdog Quote-Pairing of the Week

This is a dark red square with the quote: "The best way to predict your future is to create it." by Stephen Covey
This image is an informational graphic from the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America. It says: "Climate Change is a health threat. Rising temperatures lead to longer allergy seasons and can make air pollution worse. This can increase the risk and severity of asthma attacks and cause more allergies."


While we’re creating our future, why not take pains to create the best one possible?
 Who would choose more and worse asthma and allergies? We still can do many things to mitigate the effects of climate change. What’s holding you back?

I kicked off last month with a video about climate change refugees. It featured a call to proactive action. This month, I’m pairing quotes about being proactive in one’s life with quotes about climate change. It’s not too late to mitigate the effects

Where is our strength?

The Artdog Quote of the Week 

For the last few years, there’s been a clash in our public discourse about the nature of strength and its sources. In case I wasn’t enough on record on this topic yet, I stand with Stephen’s analysis. Diversity is not a handicap. It brings a variety of viewpoints, talents, and capabilities to any situation. In our human community as in ecosystems in nature, diversity fosters resilience.

Consider this equation

The Artdog Quote of the Week

If all employers followed this advice, they’d be paying their people a living wage, and supporting their roles as family members in society through paid sick leave, parental leave, and/or personal leave.

And we’d all be better off.
