Ed B. on Making A Difference

My friend, Ed Brengar, has a very good post on Making A Difference – Are You Up to It?

It comes down to what are your goals. Do you just want to make money? Or do you want to make a difference? Can you imagine yourself changing the world? Or is changing yourself still too daunting a task?

If you want to make money, you can do that alone. It’s easy. If you want to make a difference, then you are going to have to collaborate. Not only collaborate, but you will have to allow yourself the privilege of changing your ideas and your thinking on many, many things.

You’ll find yourself in relationships with people who don’t care about your bank account. They care about you, as a person, who wants to make a difference.

Ed is someone who has helped me change my way of thinking on a number of things. And I buy into what he’s saying here wholeheartedly. Read his entire post.

  1. Bill,
    I read Ed Brenegar’s “Making a Difference.”
    Some good stuff in there, especially the challenge to “grow up” and “embrace change as a friend.” Thanks for making the link.
    All the best…

  2. Yeah, growing up. Something our wives are waiting to happen.
    A friend told me the other day of an encounter he had while playing golf with his grandson. He said that this friend of his crossed their path on the course, and in their exchange, he told the grandson, who is 13 years old, “Its easy to be average. It takes courage to excel.” I think is part of the reason why more people aren’t doing better than they should. Of course courage takes character, and that kind of character is hard to develop by yourself. So, I see a lot of this coming back to the kind of relationships we have with people.
