Have a Positive Impact During Challenging Times

Make the most of yourself by fanning the tiny, inner sparks of possibility into flames of achievement.
Golda Meir

This site is designed to help people who want to improve our world by having a positive impact understand how they might do that. Resources for career exploration, all aspects of the job-search process and very actionable ideas about how you can have a positive impact during these uncertain times are provided. I have taken a very expansive view of the meaning of “common good” and “positive impact” so that this site can provide career and personal insights to as many people as possible. Hundreds of very practical and actionable resources and links are available here to help you reach your goals.

A central resource on this site is the recently published book, “Have a Positive Impact During Uncertain Times.” That book adds to the resources on this website while providing readers with a chance to submit positive impacts examples for possible publication in a follow-up book if enough examples are provided. See a further explanation of the book by clicking on this link…..

It is never too late to become what you might have been.
George Eliot

I hope this website provides value to a large number of people who want to act in the Common Good and have a Positive Impact and/or be employed in an organization that has a positive impact. Working for the Common Good and Having Positive Impact requires commitment, health, and energy. Our world needs as many of these types of people as possible.

I wish you the best in your exploration of having a Positive Impact for the Common Good.
