Almost all of my clients come to career coaching because they are yearning to make a difference in the work they do, and in the life they lead.  They often feel that in order to do that, they need to change positions or careers.  While that may be true in order to have the big impact you want to truly have, I believe you can make a difference right now, right where you are!

I just read the book Can’t Wait to Get to Heaven by Fannie Flagg where one of the characters, Elner Shimfissle, is an inspiration to everyone she ever met just by her wonderous curiosity and interest in the human spirit, nature and the world.   In small ways, she touched the lives of everyone she met just by being kind, offering support, and being fully present.

We can each do that every day.  It does not have to be a big impact on many if you are in a career or have a lifestyle that does not leave you time or give you the resources right now.  It can be a small impact on some that can have the kind of positive ripple effect that you can’t even imagine.

As you approach 2013, make this the year you do make a difference, each and every day, from right where you are!
