Do you have causes? Professor Elliott at
The point here isn't whether his causes are right or wrong, but rather that he has stated causes. Try writing down 2 or 3 things you're passionate about and would like to see changed... and then start doing!
When I was completing my PURA research I got to know Professor Maier very well and one thing I admired about her is that she had 2 very passionate causes (at least!) that she was always doing something about.
Like the causes or not, people admired that she was standing for what she believed in. Another benefit (occuring most of the time) is that having something to stand for will make you happier, particularly when you see progress within your cause.
This post raises a whole new issue: execution. It's one thing to state what you want to do; it's quite another to accomplish your stated goal. More on this later.
