Pitch in, Help Others in Little Ways
This blog post by A Vishwanathan has a powerful takeaway: “We don’t lack the intent to be useful or to serve, but we simply don’t have the time. Our acts can be random and small – helping an elderly person, making way for a lady to sit on the bus, etc . We don’t even need to make a special effort. Just look around, in our own circles of immediate influence, we will find people who need help but are not asking for it…they are just there, fellow voyagers, like you and me, who are struggling with their own daily challenges through Life.”

Thanks for sharing Rob's tips on writing and editing, Swapna. He says write, write, write, then edit edit and edit. I think I've found that focusing on each part of a writing project has helped me. I focus on writing first, then editing. Both are as important to the final product. I try not to edit initially and just focus on the writing.

THank you for this post.
