You Can Change the World!

July 13, 2009

For those of your stuggling with “what you are meant to do” in this life, check out this blog post by Dave Pollard (it provides a much more in-depth treatment of these issues).  On his blog he provides four “world changing” questions and follows up with the chart showing the twelve thing that you can to do make the world a better place.  This reminds me of all the times my Dad would say that we have to “leave the world better than we found it” . . . hmm, Dad, you’re not alone.

On a personal level:

1. “What one additional capacity or skill, more than any other, do you think you need to acquire or learn, to equip yourself to make the world a better place, and why? What is the single best way for you to acquire or learn (or motivate yourself to learn) that additional capacity or skill?”

2. “What one additional action, more than any other, do you think you can take, personally, to make the world a better place, and why? ”

3. “What one additional action, more than any other, do you think you can take, in your community, to make the world a better place, and why?”

4. “What one additional action, more than any other, do you think you can take, in your job or enterprise, to make the world a better place, and why?”

The follow up question that ties in with each of these . . . “What’s really holding you back from doing so? What can you do to get past this block?”
