The older I get, the more time I spend trying to figure out how I can give back to the world in any shape or form really. From volunteering in Africa, to leaving random notes on the streets for people to find, all the way to paying a bigger tip and sitting with a friend to offer some advice.
The form does not really matter at the end of the day. It really is just about being selfless and thinking about something other than you, your busy life and what you need.
I find giving back more gratifying than achieving my own goals. That personal impact, that ability to change someone else's fate is overwhelmingly beautiful.
So in a time of year when we are forced to think about ourselves and what we want to achieve, it is important to also consider those around you and how you plan to impact them. And I do not mean impacting them through your achievements but rather impacting them through your actions.
So take a breather and day off from you, and GIVE BACK!!! Leave a sweet note somewhere, call someone who needs some cheering up, skip work and volunteer, JUST DO SOMETHING!!!!! The world needs you and so does your best year yet.
