‘Every day, we change. We move (slowly) toward the person we’ll end up being.

Not just us, but our organizations. Our political systems. Our culture.

Every day we make the hard decisions that build a culture, an organization, a life.

Since yesterday, since last week, since you were twelve, have you been making deposits or withdrawals from the circles of supporters around you?

People don’t become selfish, hateful and afraid all at once. They do it gradually.

When we see the dystopian worlds depicted in movies and books [politics], are we closer to those outcomes than a generation ago? Do we find ourselves taking actions that make our conversations more considered, our arguments more informed, our engagements more civil? Or precisely the opposite, because it’s easier?

When your great-grandfather arrives by time machine, what will you show him? What have you built, what are you building? When your great-grandchildren remember the choices we made, at a moment when we actually had a choice, what will they remember?

We are always becoming, and we can always make the choice to start becoming something else, if we care.’
-Seth Godin


Evolving contribution.

Readers are encouraged and invited to contribute to Dayle’s Community Cafe. Hazel Morgan asked to share, ‘Art. It’s not just a job, it’s a calling. Is it calling you?’

Art Graduates

‘A job is just a work if it is done to earn income and status. When you start loving your work it’s no more work it will become your passion. Different professions that have been surveyed, the artist found being satisfied and happiest of all. Since apart from money artists enjoy more facilities such as flexible working hours and opportunity to show their creativity and talent.

Today many people believe in the wrong perception that artist are not well paid as compared to other graduates like doctors and engineers. However, they are unaware of the fact that artist is the one among all who are found to be more satisfied with their jobs.

According to survey Most of the people in the America feel that they cannot concentrate on their work completely since for them their work is just a job they are doing for some motives while, It is also found that 82% of arts graduates report feeling very engaged with their work and they feel pleasure doing their job.

We’ve heard in life we should follow our passions. Perhaps, more than passion we  follow our contribution. What is our contribution? How does it align with purpose? How do we evolve our place along humanity’s spectrum? Maybe our contribution is simply the intersection of what we love, and what we are good at. Passion here being defined as contribution.
