Remembering Joe

A great man named Joe just passed away. He was a leader in my area of the country. I remember him as a bigger than life kind of guy, energetic and very people-oriented. He knew everybody and seemed to get along with everyone.

I looked at his list of accomplishments and it was overwhelming--dozens of boards that he sat on, numerous nonprofits, he was a great family man, etc. What moved me most was that he focused much of his time on supporting local businesses and growing the local economy.

It's meaningful to focus on one thing, such as your locale, to give greater meaning to your efforts. It's hard to affect an entire nation, but you can make a difference in a city or region. Smaller focus can bring bigger results.
