Post-Christmas Resolution, Day 11

Held a Destination Imagination(tm) meeting tonight. Destination Imagination link

Thoughtful giving is sometimes done when you volunteer for something that may take many hours, days or month to complete. Serving on a school’s PTA board, volunteering to fill a leadership position in a non-profit or club, coaching a team, signing up to be an usher at your church or synagogue, or volunteering to teach music lessons are all good examples.

When you signup its new and exciting. You are thinking hard. You are involved.

But what about six months later? The excitement has worn off, it’s a grind. You may have forgotten why you signed up.

It doesn’t have to be that way. You can make your giving thoughtful again. Think about who you are helping. Think about how you can do the job better. Think about it how it fits into the larger picture. Think about the lives you’ve impacted in a small way.

Then act.

About Eric Winger

Our perception of time is key to how we use our time. The most fundamental way to change that perception is to give our time. This opens us up to new opportunities and ideas from which we can build to really make a difference. ... Yes, we *do* have time to make a difference!
