Post-Christmas Resolution, Day 96 – It’s Still About ‘We’

Title 1 school funding requires documentation of parent involvement. Created a summary of the 4th grade engineering project I did over the last couple months and sent it to the school.

Also gave a speech, whose message I hope was a gift to the audience.

Tonight I competed in a Toastmasters speech contest at the Area level. I gave the speech I talked about several weeks ago, titled ‘We’.  What struck me was that I realized that I really cared about this speech. Not the giving of it, but how it would be received. I wanted my audience to care.

In my humble opinion, most everything we do of consequence in life is for or with someone else. When we work together, we accomplish great things – whether its engineers writing software, relief teams working in Japan, doctors saving lives, or Toastmasters having a contest. They are part of a team. After giving this speech again tonight, I believe it even more strongly than ever.

It’s not about Me, it’s about We.

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!
