To be of use*

The pitcher cries for water to carry
and a person for work that is real.

All my life, I’ve wanted to be useful.

I’m at a point in my career where this is my primary concern.

What a blessing!

Today, on Dr. King’s birthday, it’s good to ask:

How may I be more useful?

And so I’m asking you.

Should I:

    • Offer more courses?
    • Do more videos?
    • Offer a coaching group?
    • What topics would you like to see me address?
    • What new issues should I work on?
    • What communities should I reach out to?
