These are divisive times-if we allow them to be. We don't

need to conclude that someone's perspective is a reflection

of faulty character or a diabolic soul, when it is simply

a different perception about community or country or

weather. We need not harshly label or yell at each other

billions of times a day. That screeches the opportunity to

see goodness to a halt.


When we see and do good things, we are changed-even

if only in that moment. Our gentler nature arises. I have

been fortunate to see pure goodness at work in communities

from Alaska to Zimbabwe. I am humbled by and

thankful for these experiences, events that triggered questions

this book seeks to answer.

Isn't seeing more good and doing more good the best way

to find common ground and to unite us?


How far, in terms of space, time, and lives touched, does a

single act of goodness ripple out?

What if I shared good ideas by reflecting on the hope and

generosity-and the fear and hunger-that I have witnessed

in places near and far?


The goal of this book is to illustrate how much good is in

the world and the immeasurable impact that one person

can have on others. It is easy to bring more goodness to

people around you, through simple acts. This book can

help you identify those opportunities in your everyday

life. This enables each of us individually to build more

compassionate cultures. In doing so, we create societies

that flourish rather than decay.

Ken Streater works to create greater good by inspiring us all to find and stand on common ground. He does this by sharing what he has learned from eye-opening experiences and deep interactions with everyday heroes around the world. Be it a showdown with angry hippos, tropical nuclear attacks, billionaire shenanigans, Siberian soccer wars or quiet conversations, these events motivate Ken to foster positive change. Ken is a former international river guide, an Alaskan bush schoolteacher turned social-good entrepreneur, Fortune 500 consultant, keynote speaker, and acclaimed author. He has advanced degrees in environmental geography, education, and outdoor recreation, and has run businesses, worked, and traveled in fifty countries. Those who have been touched by Ken's work agree that his message is "inspiring and heartwarming but most importantly, it is actionable," and that he "cuts through the obstacles to make clear how each one of us can be a force for good every day in the communities in which we live."
