It's not all about me

A couple of months ago I read an article that revolved around our busy schedules and the myriad tasks we pile onto our days (guilty as charged).  Another piece talked about teamwork on the job.  It’s true: life continues around us in all its busy-ness  —  at work and at play.  But if we were to slow down a minute, shift our focus and help others get where they need to go, it may also serve to lessen our load … either now, or in the future.  Because in the end, it’s really not all about us.  In the overall scheme of things, our role is small.  But it just might make a huge difference in the long run.  Perhaps we’ll make someone’s day more bearable.  Or offer another person the attention they sorely lack.  The time we spend might even go unnoticed, yet I don’t think it will go to waste.  I believe the ripples will long be felt where it matters most.

Is it all about you?
