For whatever reason, lately I've been spending a lot of time contemplating my role in the world; specifically my impact on it. While I like to think my mere presence is enriching enough (just kidding), I'm realizing that I'd like to have a more profound effect. I'm finding myself unsatisfied with the thought of the next 20+ years of my working life consumed by something that doesn't have a direct and significant impact on either my clients, my community, or perhaps even the world. And while I am still lacking clarity on what exactly that next chapter entails, I feel I'm inching closer and closer to it every day.
"People have enough to live by, but not enough to live for. They have the means, but no meaning."
