Give Back and Make a Difference

Posted by Tom Locke on July 6th, 2010 filed in Business, Education, Life

In the circles that I travel in, there are a number of people who stand out for their willingness to give or assist others  ” no matter how strapped they are for time, cash or opportunities.

The two  things that they have in common  are a sense of self worth and the satisfaction that they are making a difference (without expecting anything in return).

Reflecting upon yourself and your associates, do these  statements apply:   “I’ll give back when… ”  followed by, “When I have more time ” or “When I make more money ” or “As soon as…” .   If so, I suggest that you give some  thought to the following quote from former TV anchorman and journalist, Tom Brokaw, who said:

“It’s easy to make a buck.  It’s a lot tougher to make a difference.”
