Post-Christmas Resolution, Day 12

Today’s giving: Marketed  for Feedbacker’s Toastmasters , a Toastmasters club specializing in evaluation, by visiting a different club and passed out flyers.

Clearly what I gave today was advertising for one club to another. But is volunteer advertising really giving?

Maybe.

If a person hears me, then comes to Feedbacker’s and betters his or herself, clearly I gave something. But what of the other people who didn’t find value? Did I waste their time, rather than give something?

Regardless of the answer, I feel its important to consider how your message will be received. Are you advertising something of value to the listeners, not just to you?

To think about how your gift will be received might be one of the best gifts of all.

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!
