What You Do Matters

You may have heard of the parable of The Boy and the Starfish (if not, it's ok I have posted it below). Pour yourself a drink, sit back and let it sink in.

One day, an old man was walking along a beach that was littered with thousands of starfish that had been washed ashore by the high tide. As he walked he came upon a young boy who was eagerly throwing the starfish back into the ocean, one by one.

Puzzled, the man looked at the boy and asked what he was doing. Without looking up from his task, the boy simply replied,

“I’m saving these starfish, Sir”.

The old man chuckled aloud,

“Son, there are thousands of starfish and only one of you. What difference can you make?”

The boy picked up a starfish, gently tossed it into the water and turning to the man, said,

“I made a difference to that one!”

What you do matters. Read that again!
