Most, if not all of us are motivated by accomplishments and accolades. We spend a great deal of time, effort and money investing in our futures so that we can become something bigger and better than we currently are. That’s why the majority set goals, especially at the beginning of a new year, quarter or month. The problem is, most of them are only good intentions because not only do a scant few percentages of people write their goals down but an even smaller number actually accomplishes them.
The same can be true when we are working and trying to ‘Be Different’ in our communities and through charitable organizations. Often, we start out with very lofty aspirations while neglecting opportunities that are right at our doorstep. We are busy people. And if we are not careful we are apt to miss some great and important opportunities that are right in front of us.
