Help me help you

07/28/2012

If busy people see you helping yourself, they’ll move mountains to push you along the path to your goals. If they detect laziness, perhaps not.

My mentors lament the disposition of this generation of graduating scholars and young professionals who “outsource their thinking” (to quote Frederick Townes) and refuse to do the hard work of…actually trying.

The universe itself will conspire in your favor when you set an intention and make approximations towards your goals, and the path towards your dreams rarely starts with asking for help.
