My Deed of the Day: Make sure I heartily thank at least on person who helps us help more women with obstetric fistula.

My Tip of the Day: “Done is better than perfect.” I put a lot of emphasis on getting stuff done—we’re in this work for the long haul, and the only way to accomplish anything is to keep moving.

What are you doing a 11:00pm - Reading in bed. My favorite book this year was Hans Rosling’s “Factfulness,” which addresses common misconceptions about the ‘developing’ world. I think it should be required reading! I also loved Steven Pinker’s Enlightement Now: The case for Reason, Science, Humanism and Progress.  In these challenging times I appreciate rigorous fact based analysis like both Pinker’s and Rosling’s that demonstrate the state of the world is actually improving.
