As the holidays approach, many of us are planning vacation, family gatherings, shopping trips, Christmas presents, religious festivities, or how much money to donate to charity for this year’s tax write-off.

But it might be worth a few minutes of our time to plan how we will use our time to help others.

Because if you’re going to make a difference to someone this Christmas, this year, or in this life, making a plan will help turn that wish into reality.

A plan to help others may be among the best laid plans.

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!
