“Do unto others… you know the rest”
This week has been an experiment in making my life better by helping to make the world a better place.
To see how this has been going so far, check out yesterday’s entry in my experiment in how to help other people!
How to Help Other People – Day 3
Everyone has a pet project. Whether it’s getting in shape, remodeling your kitchen, cleaning your house, writing your novel or anything else, it gives us a focus and occupies our time.
It also keeps us apart from other people.
Today I worked to put aside my pet project and help someone else with their project.
It cost me nothing but my time, but I know my contribution was helpful (albeit small).
In a world that is incredibly busy, it’s hard to find the time to help someone else with their passion project. Often that comes at the cost of our own projects. However, taking the time to help other people can be an important investment, not just in others but in ourselves.
Think on it. After all, when we ask how to help improve ourselves, perhaps we should be asking how to help others instead!
