Everyday we are faced with the decision of “do I want to be part of this or not?” It’s a simple decision to make and yet it’s difficult to know why we choose what we choose.
While I am not a joiner, being a joiner is easier than ever. Everyday I see opportunities to be part of something just for the sake of being part of something. Go to a MeetUp group. Go join a Facebook group. Go find a non-profit cause.
Take a moment before you just GO or just JOIN to reflect on the “I’d rather.”
If I’d rather…
- Save my time
- Save my money
- Save my network
- Save my ideas
- Save my resources
Then I am “SAVING MYSELF” from joining a group that I would feel “no way would I be part of this.”
Go find a group that values (short-term/long-term) what you BOTH deem yourself as good at AND that you fearlessly give away.
Be a giver not a joiner!
