Take This Step, Make A Difference

by Dr. Rick Kirschner on September 12, 2011

Change for the better happens when individuals like you and me identify what we do care about and then find a step forward that fulfills it. It really is that simple. My regular readers know that I ask you to ask yourself:

  • What do you care about?
  • What difference do you want to make?
  • What matters enough to you to want to give your best, be your best or do your best?

For me it’s always been about the quality of my moment in life. Since I have no guarantees of any moment beyond this one (something that frequent travel has taught me well) I want this moment to be the bet it can be. When I do a project, or work with a group, or help an individual to fulfill themselves, I do it because I care about the quality of my own life.

I do it because I care about the quality of my own life. I know that at the end of the day, if I have given my best, I’ll take that with me. But that if I give my least, I’ll have nothing to show for it.

The Difference is You

It’s an interesting math exercise, but when you add it up, it means the biggest difference you make when you seek to make a difference in the world around you is actually in yourself. And that’s something you bring home with you, to your family and loved ones.

Change for the better starts on your inside and works its way out into the world around you, then returns as its own reward. In the circle of life, that’s a cycle you can do a lot with!

Be well,

Dr. Rick
