The desire for self improvement can lead us in an endless pursuit of acquiring personal excellence and greater levels of achievement.
Doing better for ourselves can never be wrong but in the absence of social responsibility as part of our journey, we cheat ourselves and the world around us the best parts of ourselves.
“Again the greatest use of a human was to be useful. Not to consume, not to watch, but to do something for someone else that improved their life, even for a few minutes.” – Dave Eggers
When we open our smart phone calendars, locate a day and find those few minutes a month to improve the life of someone else, we’ll begin to realize it’s a necessary component of our own goals for self improvement.
