Donated our dining room table and six chairs.


Personal leadership involves doing things that are invisible to most. In the corporate world, donating money, volunteering time, hosting fundraisers, and a list of other common ways to give back, are all marketed very carefully to the public.


Because it’s a great public relations strategy.

To do it invisibly would be considered a missed opportunity.

Oh well.

The simple concept of reciprocity seems fair


Would a decent paradigm shift be that in exchange for a ‘donation’ something tangible would be given to the donor?

No more simply asking for money.

Rather an exchange – we help them, they help us.

This is the model Mid Life Celebration is moving forward with.

Work For Money?

jungle jeff, Daily reflections on Excellence, has an overarching theme.  Money.

With money, you can buy food, shelter, insurance, transportation, and even use money to help others.

And one more thing I’m trying to teach him, “He is rich who owes nothing.” — Hungarian Proverb
