100 words + an inspirational quote

Big problems get attention. Little issues, more likely ignored or swept aside. Blowhards on the stump or social media crazies boast, “Believe me, I’ll solve your problems.” Why? Everybody wants to be a heralded hero, great inventor, innovator, diplomat, philanthropist or orator — we look up to and respect them. But that adoration is something we are collectively stingy with because we want success rather than effort; we want proof over belief, and we want proof of delivery promises. Amazon guarantees next-day delivery, provides tracking and sends confirmation. No politician ever dreamed of such bold promises for the simplest program deliveries.
