A few weeks ago, I closed a post with that statement. The conversation was short. The post was about the concept that if you can’t be rich or famous at least try to be useful. It got five comments and died as it should, I suppose.
Discovering the power of being useful at this late stage of my life has led to a profound transformation in my life.
I am blessed with skills of knowledge and communication that my medical degree and life experience gave me. The modern system of medical care delivery doesn’t seem to value that very much. I have found that there are people all around me who hunger for something that gets easier for me to provide every day.
The older I get, the easier it is to be useful. I think that is true no matter where your skills lie. I often wish I had the more useful skills that a mechanic or carpenter would have.Published in
