Doing the work that needs to be done - not for profit or the glory - simply because you see the need for your particular talent or skill set and want to help however you can.
Sociologists would probably consider this utopia - a society where everyone works and plays together for the good of all - and where everyone is taken care of.
There are places in the world where this concept exists, but I can only imagine it is most likely dying out. Native South Africans, as well as other African cultures, call it Ubuntu. And it is the antithesis of Capitalism. You see, you can't make excessive (stupid) amounts of money when folks are committed to sharing their skills and resources to help each other.
This is why I am always super impressed and excited to work with people who see a problem or a niche to be filled and dive in to create a unique solution. These folks are incredibly passionate about doing the good work for the benefit of all. Not because they see a path to riches but because they genuinely care and want to help others who are also doing good work.
I recently met someone accomplishing just that, and it is inspiring to know that the fundamental desire to help is still alive and well.
Any of us can step up, fill a gap, create something, share our beautifully authentic gifts, and without a doubt, change the world - together!
