In this economy, it is so easy to get wrapped up in yourself. But what if you took all of this energy and began using it to help move someone else forward? You could apply this concept to either your personal life or your business life, or even both.
On a personal note, you could take some time out of your day to look in on an aging neighbor. Or better yet, offer to pick up a few items for someone the next time you are at the market.
From a business perspective, consider what may be weighing your boss down and then begin devising a plan to take a few items off of his/her plate. In addition to Brownie points, you may also pick up a few more skills that could set you up nicely for your next position.
Shifting your mindset can do wonders to your outlook. And a new perspective is something we could all use to get through this economy.
