An end-of-year reflection

As we approach the new year, here is one of the best reflections I’ve found for considering the year that has past, and the one ahead. Keep it in mind as you consider what to accomplish next year, and where you want to spend your time, attention, and energy:

Imagine two worlds.

The first world has you in it.

The second world doesn’t.

What is the difference between these two worlds?

A friend of mine introduced me to this idea. It came from a philosophy professor of his.

Personally, this reflection got me thinking beyond money and status. I started thinking about how I make other people feel, and how I can make a difference.

It’s a simple idea, but one that gets you thinking deeply about why you do what you do.

Looking ahead, how can you maximize the difference between these two worlds?
