The waters seem uncharted. Yet, there are lessons available and often, they are within us. If you find yourself sitting too much, consuming media and feeling unproductive, you may be hoping to find a way to do something positive instead. In times like these, there is more than one. This is a tough year in the US and all over the world. Whatever you have experienced—chaos, joy, tumult, triumph (most of us have lived through a combination)—now could be your moment to lead. You can tap into your wisdom and compassion to inspire others.
Here are some ideas:
- Help People in Crisis. You can volunteer to be the calm and knowledgeable person who guides someone in pain towards the help they need.
- Mentor. Share what you know as you listen to the stories of others. Listening is one of the most generous acts there is. There are many organizations you can mentor with.
- Create. Making something with your own hands that improves the lives of others is an act of purpose that benefits everyone involved. If you have a heart to help children battling illness, you can share the work of your hands and the warmth of your heart.
- Give to Those Who Need Help. There are countless ways to help people in need of the basics. Connect with organizations in your community or start your own efforts.

We all can teach and we all can learn. There is so much good to be done in every community, our country and the world.
