Be a gift to the world

Here’s a quote I stumbled onto attributed to one Gil Bailie (not an uncommon name):

“Don’t ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive, and go do that, because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”

This is the stuff we’d like to believe could be true, that the world needs us to be exactly what we are.

But we secretly – or maybe not so secretly – feel we are so insignificant that our puny offerings couldn’t possibly make any difference.

If we could just grasp the value and contribution that micro-movements make maybe we’d see what we have in a different light.

So your weekend assignment is to go chew on this and find one thing to do; even if it’s just as an experiment.

note: When I find attribution for Gil Bailie I will update the citation.
