“A difference, to be a difference, must make a difference,” misses the point a bit. I think most are looking for a positive change, or a net positive, if in the odd scenario a negative is a net positive.

A difference, to be a difference, must be some sort of action. Which means, lazy people don’t make a difference, except for the few times they are not lazy, but this too is faulty thinking. Those who refuse to pay taxes or refuse to do something out of malaise or laziness, have in fact, impacted the world around them.
So, a difference, to be a difference, is happening all the time, regardless of what you do or what you do not do. That being said, if you’re looking for that net positive, most of the time, it will require some sort of action. Just keep in mind that the net positive, may not be the difference you are looking for, or more specifically, it may not be the difference you’re expecting.
Therefore, go to it. Do that thing, don’t do that thing. It’s all in your hands, whether you choose to do something with it or not.
