The Formula for Making a DifferenceFeb 24, 2020
Here's my current working model for a formula for making a difference:
Creativity + Character = Change for the Better
Creativity - the act of bending, breaking, or otherwise bringing something new into the world.
Here's how I define it in the Creative on Purpose Handbook, "Creativity is the simple act of making change happen. Our creative impulse is what gets you from where we are to where you want to be."
Character - a combination of your virtue and values as you live them.
Here's how I define character in Character Loans, "Character is who you really are and reputation is who other people think you are. Character and reputation don't always align. However, if you consistently show up and act with the intention and integrity you talk about, your character can strongly influence your reputation." (See also, Character Is Fate)
Change for the Better - An iteration or transformation that improves the prospects and prosperity for all.
Change for the better is the point for every worthwhile endeavor. It's certainly at the heart of my work here at Creative on Purpose.
What's your endeavor? Not sure? Why not find out?
