As author James Clear says, 

“Every action you take is a vote for the type of person you wish to become.”

And that’s such a simple way to think about whether you are being useful, or just keeping busy.

Think of the person you’d like to be in 5 years’ time, and ask:

  • Am I reacting like they would to this event?
  • If I do it this way, will I ever become like them?
  • If not this, what would they be doing right now?
  • Does doing this make me feel like I am that person already?
  • What needs to happen for me to become that person by that time?

It’s your duty to support a viable candidate.

Don’t waste your vote.
