“Having a purpose and knowing exactly what your values are will add additional years to your life.”
Hey Folks. I just read an incredibly interesting article by Dan Buettner with the title, Making Creative Altruism a Part of Every Day Life. Dr. Martin Luther King used the term “Creative Altruism” and he said, “These two words stand out; joined at their hip, they form a close-knit brother and sister relationship advancing humanity, no matter what the benevolent cause. More than ever our world needs creative altruism.”
Of course, I recommend pretty much anything that Dan Buettner writes because so much of what he says makes sense. Our disconnect from nature and dependence on technology in my mind is not helping us overall as a society. We are more socially isolated than we ever have been and it is not looking good that it will get any better,
Although the article is short, you will find several links at the bottom of the article to other pieces that he has written telling us how to lead a more purposeful life. I suggest that you take some time to dig a little deeper into what he has to say. You won’t regret it.
