Living in an era where more and more people are wanting to do good with their work, degrees, jobs, and time, I too find myself asking this question over and over again to myself for the thousandth time: “Just how do I use my time most effectively to the benefit of the most by doing the greatest good?”
What Justin Baldoni says is the key to maintaining balance in his incredibly busy life as an entrepreneur, social activist, and actor is to empower others and to collaborate with them. In fact, Baldoni did this so well that he was effectively recruit one of his now full-time employees through a “spiritual talk” that he hosted with some of his friends:
“Having been born and raised in L.A., I’ve experienced my fair share of house parties, but up until that day, I had never seen philosophy or spirituality branded with that unique layer of celebratory coolness,” Meybodi wrote in an email. “It was as if Justin and his friends successfully transformed faith from something dated into a fun, aspirational experience—without any of the baggage.”
Spirituality (faith) charged with a philosophy that speaks about those who are aching and hurting in the world carries power to attract others and create room for even more powerful collaboration.
