What is the type and depth of impact am I making on other people’s lives? Am I allocating my energy in the right places? Most importantly, is the work I’m involved in worth doing?
I’ve always had an eye toward social impact. It’s one of those constants in my mind that I think about at least once a day, during the commute, walking down the streets, or times when I’m free to wander and think about new ideas. I read the book by David Bornstein, “How to Change the World” over the holiday break and it was enough to inspire me to think more seriously about the impact I’m making in the world. I volunteer regularly with organizations I’m part of, but I’d like to increase my efforts in this area. This will be a space to house ideas and think more thoroughly about how to make an even bigger and lasting impact on others.
Organizations I’m a part of:
UNICEF, UNDP, UNV, 826Chi
