I have a feeling if we ask that question we would probably get a lot of nopes and some indifference. Why do we take and stay in jobs we don’t like? We need to eat. We have a family;we have bills. Now for those who took the leap and quit their corporate jobs and moved into their passions, we tip our hats to you. For those who are still on the grind we tip our hats to you as well. Most of the leapers go into the non-profit sector. They are working everyday in their jobs to make a difference. Well, those who can’t do that, what do you do? Do you not help? The answer is: no, you can still make a difference.. What are some you can do this in your current position? First, you can talk to your boss/supervisor about starting an ongoing food bank or pantry donation drive. Your office can setup a basket in the break room with a sign saying ‘food bank donations’ and designate someone to drop them off when the basket gets full. Another way you can help is by forming a team for cancer walks or another worthy cause when the opportunities presents itself. Choose a fun name for your team. This is also a wonderful bonding experience. What a way to build a real team and boost morale. There are several more ways you can help without quitting your job. I’d love to hear some you’ve done at your workplace.
