When I feel discouraged by the state of the World, I remember this by William McRaven, US Navy Admiral :)

If You Want to Change the World, Start Off by Making Your Bed.

If you make your bed every morning you will have accomplished the first task of the day. It will give you a small sense of pride and it will encourage you to do another
task and another and another and by the end of the day that one task completed will have turned into mini task completed.

Making your bed will also reinforce the fact that the little things in life matter if you can't do the little things right you'll never be able to do the big things right and if by chance you have a miserable day you will come home to a bed that is made that you made and a made bed gives you encouragement that tomorrow will be better.

-- William McRaven, US Navy Admiral
