On Making a Difference

We humans like to think we are worthy.

We live our lives toiling to bring value to other people and myriad “enterprises”

worthy – having or showing the qualities or abilities that merit recognition in a specified way

enterprise – a project undertaken or to be undertaken, especially one that is important or difficult or that requires boldness or energy:

When we receive an invitation – ANY Invitation, most of us pause and assess the “value” of accepting.

What’s our “opportunity cost” of saying “yes”?

When we say “yes”, to what are we then saying: “No”?

Which of these options offers the highest probability that our presence will make a difference?

Will we be Honored and heard?

Is this space open enough for useful purpose – Dialog, Spirited debate, mutual respect with hope for like kind resolution?

Who else is coming? Does this matter if the theme is important?

What’s your gut telling you? That knot forming in your stomach indicates tension . . . tension is good because it gives us something to grab . . . an edge that tests our resolve to engage and do whatever it takes to make a difference.

Are you making a difference?

I know you are, so go ahead crank up the volume!

we thank you!
