That’s the title of Lawrence Scanlan’s book; his experiences hop-scotching charities. His experiences and observation reinforces the sense of purpose and fulfillment generated from helping others. What does it mean to give?
Giving comes from a sense of believing that we have enough to give; acting abundant. While there are the big, broad strokes of generosity, so much can be achieved by continuous “drops” of little things.
During our many hours of work we can lend a hand on a project, get someone a glass of water, pass on a tip on a software application and on and on. However, what I’m describing is more than simple courtesy. Acting with Character is being conscious and present while proactively choosing to live with abundance.
Try a day of living generously at work.
