My senior project, I believe its a huge project that will take me a lot of work. I believe the hardest task to achieve is to motivate people. My classmates, my friends, my family are probably people I can motivate easily, but what about the unknown people. The people I do not know about will be hard to get them involved because they do not know me. As I was reading Drive I found a quote that really stood out to me. The quote is "They're working hard and persisting through difficulties because of their internal desire to control their lives, learn about their world, and accomplish something that endures." (Pink, 79). When I read this quote I was like "this is it". If I can create videos and provide people with information, so they can learn about "their world" I think it will be a little easier to get more people involved. The reason is that people will not necessarily be listening to me, but will be listening the truth of our world. Once they see facts they will hopefully began to do something "that endures" since people will start to give up on just buying bottled water. Hopefully they will buy a bottle which can be reused , and they can do a little extra reuse this bottle. Also getting rid of plastic plastic at the grocery store since they just help carry stuff for a few minutes and then are thrown away. People will now have to have paper bags or just baskets that can be reused over and over helping to end the demand for plastics bags. Life is way easier with plastic bags, but if we take that extra step and do a little extra with reusing bags we can make a difference.
Once people begin to make small changes to their life they will be now "working hard" to keep up with these changes.Many times they will have temptations of wanting of to go back to the easier life and will have to fight hardships , but will succeed. Once the realize that they were able to overcome the challenges, they will realize that they are control of their life. People will realize that its their choice to pick they whether they want to go with the easy life with hard outcomes, or have a little harder life but live safe and a bright future. People will then look for other ways to change and become better humans.
I think this plan will is good because it shows people that being in control of their lives is what can make a difference. Sometimes we are hypnotized by the plastic bags and easy it is to get rid of them once we don't need them anymore. It good to get your head into reality and realize that its not okay to do what everyone else is doing, but to make your own choice based on what you want for the world. Lets not do what everyone is doing, lets do what we know its right even if we know it might take a little more effort.
