If you want to gain some perspective on your life, I recommend the following two things:

1. Approach a homeless person and ask them to share their story with you or alternatively do the same at a senior citizens home.

2. Visit a developing country and spend more than a week living there.

I’ve done both of these things within the past month and it’s an important thing to do at least once per year. Take the time to listen and observe.

I take for granted too often the advantages of my birthright; it’s easy to forget when you live in a suburban bubble.

This post reminds me of this quote:

Ask not what your country can do for you – ask what you can do for your country

– John F. Kennedy

Key takeaways:

1. People come first
2. Interactions should be governed by Love and respect
3. We are all connected
