“Nothing is a waste of time if you use the experience wisely.”
— Auguste Rodin
One of the side benefits of volunteering in many different ways is the chance to explore new things.
It’s a chance to visit new places, meet new people, and try new experiences. It’s a way to explore and to grow. It’s an opportunity to build resume skills and find a place where you fit. It’s a method to get involved in something to which you might never had another way in. It’s a path to becoming the person you want to be.
One thing it is never – a waste of time.
Yesterday’s gift of time … Thanks to a sparked.com challenge, I got to discover a cool, new software that lets you easily add subtitles to a video – Amara – universalsubtitles.org. With that I was able to help the Mental Health Foundation of New Zealand in a tiny way.
