A Case Against The Status Quo

photo-1

The Grind. The day-to-day. Reality. For some, this is a fantastically comfortable and ideal way to live. It’s what we do, and it’s not that complicated.

In a decade when things have been tough, having a secure job is a wonderful thing to have. It provides steady income and allows us to take care of our responsibilities – for ourselves and for our people.

Interestingly enough, having a secure job doesn’t always fulfill everything. It doesn’t fulfill the need to do what we’re designed to do as individuals; to satisfy our need for the contribution and giving back to the society in which we live. It would be nice to leave the world a slightly better place – even in the tiniest regard – after we’re gone.

There seems to be a positive influx of well-being in the past few years that has arisen post-depression.

After Obama’s “Change” campaign, it’s safe to say that not much has actually changed in the world. Now the people, especially those who were strong supporters of this campaign, are standing up and realizing that we can, or have to, be the instruments of change ourselves.

Regardless of the overuse of the word “epic,” change starts small – and can continue to exist that way.

There’s a scale of doing good versus telling everyone about the fact that you’re doing good. One drives results and the other, in theory, drives business which should drive results. This method has created some wariness among the do-gooders out there.

And really, it’s not about that.

It’s about discovering what you can do. What you were made to do. What you can do to the best of your ability, on this planet, to fulfill why you’re here and what will exist as a result.

Life is short. Why go through the motions?
