Call me strange and maybe a little cynical. Fine with me. But, if you wanna impress me, successes/accolades/trophies won’t do it! I’ve just never been moved by such values. Maybe the streets did this to me…really not sure. But one thing’s for sure. If you want to catch my eye, you’d better be helping someone. Heck, I don’t even care if you’ve achieved a degree of success in the nonprofit world. If it’s pushed you to stop helping, lose it.
I just can’t understand such values considering none of them (trophies, A’s, success, status, love for material stuff) will make it long 6 feet under the dirt, if they could even fit in the coffin with our giant heads.
Waste of time.
So what do I believe will last, you might ask?
