So... now you've identified what it is that you do.  If not, go back to my last post.

Now you need to step back, get up on a big ladder, and look at it from a bigger perspective.

In 2000, Will Ferrell mocked George Bush in a Saturday Night Live sketch, answering a debate question to sum up his presidential campaign in a single word.

"Strategery!"  was his answer.

How You Do That Thing You Do...

Remember that movie from 1996, written and directed by Tom Hanks, That Thing You Do?  It was about a small band making a hit in the 60's.

I am a Rock - Are you going it alone?

A winter's day 

In a deep and dark December; 

I am alone, 
Gazing from my window to the streets below 
On a freshly fallen silent shroud of snow. 
I am a rock, 

I am an island. 
"I Am A Rock", Simon and Garfunkel

Your passion for helping others is awesome, and I know you've got a desire to change the world and make it a better place.

"We actually show up!"

I was driving my daughter to work the other day and got behind a white pickup truck, obviously used for work with a compressor and tools in the back.  The sides were painted with advertising for an irrigation and yard work company.  What really caught my attention was the slogan painted on the back window of the cab.  It was in large white letters, in italics.
We actually show up!
