Another night at the hospital with my son. He’s done so well, they released him earlier today!
We spend most of our day reacting to things. Bills, emails, customers, deadlines, traffic, and phone calls.
But the things that need our attention the most may not be calling us at all. Whether its a teacher who’s overworked, a homeless person who’s hungry, or a neighbor going through a hard time, they aren’t likely to reach out for help. That may be why we don’t give as much as we can. It’s just not in front of us on a daily basis.
But we have one spot in our life which isn’t reactionary, our to-do list.
The next time you go through your to-do list, consider adding one more thing – A Personal Giving Project.
A Personal Giving Project is a small project or to-do item where you find a way to help someone out. It could be anything, but to get the most value it probably should be something that forces a small change in your routine. Need ideas? This blog has some, Random Acts of Kindness has more. Start searching on the internet, you’ll find even more of them.
How would it feel to check off a Personal Giving Project at the end of the day?
