Another way to look at this strategy is to realize that you have the more control over your own life than anything else, so that if you want more of something in the world, it is far simpler to add it yourself than to try and get someone else to do it.
So, if you want more organization in the world, do more organizing yourself. If you want more peace in the world, be more peaceful yourself. If you want more intelligence in the world, become more intelligent yourself.*
And while you're adding all this good stuff to the world you'll be acting as a role model for others, who may just be inspired by what you're doing and want to help you out, especially when they see how happy it makes you feel.
Peace, Love, and Bicycles,
* and when you aren't as successful as you might have liked, you will be able to me more sympathetic to the similar struggles and failures of everyone else who is also doing their best to add more good to the world :-)
