You Can Save the Planet

Thursday, March 19, 2009

We are drowning. And not just in credit card bills and tuition payments. We are drowning in false choices.

We are told that we must choose between making money and making a difference, that it is not possible to harness our strengths, embrace our passions, and have a career at the same time. We’ve been misled, misinformed, and we’re now anxious about the future. But crisis — both economic and planetary — creates opportunity.

Whatever you think about your career during this economic maelstrom — think the opposite.

Some clarity: The world’s biggest needs align with dynamic opportunities to engage your strengths, find meaning — and make money. These challenges are creating unseen career paths on which to emotionally, spiritually, and financially thrive.
