Folk singer Harry Chapin did very well for himself. He had some major hits, including “Cat’s in the Cradle”.
But more than that, he did very well for others. Before he died, he was performing over 200 concerts a year. Over half of those concerts were benefits. Over half! That’s walking your talk – that’s leadership.
Those benefits must have been part of his passion, otherwise he wouldn’t have been able to do so many. He needed that connection with purpose, of his passion put into action for the benefit of others.
If you’re interested in your strengths and your passions, and connecting them with purpose, follow Harry Chapin’s example today. You don’t need to specifically give away over 50% of your gifts to someone else today. Find your own way to benefiting others, a way that uses your passion. That’s you at your best.
