Giving as a way of life

Ubered home from Disney’s Contemporary Resort.

Giving as a way of life.

Giving to yourself.

Giving to your Family.

Giving to your colleagues.

Giving to your community.

Giving to the world.

Any of the above are challenging to do when you are not decently organized.

Even more out of reach is doing them all when not decently organized.

Organize to maximize your giving

The latest tools for staying organized. They arrived while i was in Glacier National Park last week.

 

Organize to maximize your giving.

In giving you receive.

Start a blog and write about your expertise.

Blogging is simple because you can do it on your own terms and on your own schedule.

If you can’t blog, this may be the uncovering of your opportunity, which is one of these two:

  1. You can’t write because you aren’t an expert (yet).
  2. You can’t write because you aren’t organized enough to dedicate the time and effort required to write like you mean it.

Which is it?

Longfellow Quote

Is More Better?
Is More Better?

“Give what you have.  To someone, it may be better than you dare to think.” — Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

This Longfellow quote came to me in a most unusual way. A piece of mail from Senior’s First, a Central Florida charity to help seniors who can not help themselves.

But what is so powerful is recently, I was talking to someone about what happened on Christmas day, while we where doing our 11th annual Christmas day tradition – delivering Food for Families.

The month before doing the same thing on Thanksgiving day, we had a van full of food, and got lost, spending several hours making deliveries.

But on Christmas morning, as we pulled away from Ocoee High School, Cheryl said all the deliveries were on the same street.  We found the street in about 15 minutes, delivered the food and were done.

Cheryl asked if we should go back and do more.

And I said, “No. We shouldn’t let the amount of time determine the value of our efforts. We should feel good about what we did to help.”

And so it goes, the constant battle to listen to society’s stereotypes and what’s in our hearts.
