Get Involved!

Too many people live their lives as though they have no control of it ... they go to work (or not), they come home they wish away their work weeks away looking forward to the weekend, so they can do nothing. For many others work is a necessary evil that pays the bills and perhaps facilitates some hobbies outside of work ... the cottage, the boat, the travelling etc. I have spoken often about the change you can have on your life if you just recognise work is an essential part of your life, so you might as well get as much as you can from it. Today I want you to think about getting involved in something different ... a charity, a cause, a political agenda. Don't go home night after night and watch TV, play video games or some other time sucking activity. Get out and get involved! There are a ton of charities that could use help. I'm sure wherever you live there are social programs that could benefit from help. Politicians make decisions every day that affect us ... why not get involved and make your voice heard? Here are a few reasons to do this ... 1. You will be making a difference in your community. 2. You will meet interesting people. 3. You will broaden your world. 4. You will be using your time in a much more productive way. 5. You will actually be OUT THERE living your life ... and making a difference, which will make you feel better! ________________________________________________________________ Kevin Dee is CEO of Eagle (a Professional Staffing Company) Gain a competitive edge!
