Today I found out that an email I forwarded after giving it about 30 seconds of thought was one of the reasons that contributed to a friend applying for a year-long super cool leadership position in AIESEC Southern Cone.
Yet another reminder of the power of tiny actions that ripple out and have surprising effects. I don't for one second take full, or even majority, credit for her decision. I just know that I'm proud to have played a role, however small.
It makes me think: what can each of us do with just 5-10 minutes a day that can truly make a difference? If we could always change someone's life with a few minutes of thought and a few minutes of action, what would we choose to do? And how do we make our few minutes count for as much as possible?
