A Journey that Ignited a Passion for Compassion

About 3 years ago I decided to leave the corporate world and pursue my passion for connecting people and collectively changing the world for the greater good. This article is about that journey to not only finding my passion, but a way to honour it and use it to guide me through every day of my life. I hope it can inspire you to do the same.

Know Your Value

When someone starts up a conversation with you by noting, "I've been around long enough to remember very well being bombed by Mr. Hitler", what can you do but listen in reverent awe? In one of those happy chance encounters that filled my commute with delightful conversation rather than the routine hum of my regular playlist, I got to thinking just how incredibly small this world really is. The wealth of experience that passes us by on the street, the subway, and even on the bus is truly astounding.

Navigating the Maze

I don’t often get caught up in TV shows. Aside from playing re-runs of the same family-friendly sitcoms in the background while I work, I usually don’t find myself sitting down for all that long to get into a series. There are, however, a few good exceptions. Like most viewers, I found myself absolutely drawn into the phenomenon that is Westworld this past fall. More so than reveling in the dusty old westerns that used to play on our TV, I was absolutely captivated by the underlying questions raised by the program with respect to identity, morality, and the excavation of the self.

Argue for Your Limitations

For about two to three weeks, I have been contemplating what to write for this post. At times I question why Michael even asked me to participate. You want my story? Why? Is it special? Of course it’s special. And that’s lesson #1 (I’m not yet sure if there will be more than one lesson throughout this piece) – “Argue for your limitations and they are sure to be yours.” Don’t ever sell yourself short.

Flying with Clipped Wings

 I’ve been a planner for my entire life. From the time I was eight years old, I had my whole life planned out. It went something like this: I was going to go to the Air Force Academy, I was going to major in Astronautical engineering, I was going to get a master’s degree in Aerospace engineering, do a tour in an Air Force Research Lab, go to Test Pilot School and then be an astronaut and work on the mission to Mars; if I met someone somewhere in there they’d just have to be okay with my life plan.
