Alfred Adler, in his paper entitled “On the Origin of the Striving for Superiority and of Social Interest,” made the following comment: “The goal that is best suited for perfection would have to be a goal which signifies the ideal community of all mankind, the ultimate fulfillment of evolution.”
We can do this by ourselves, in our family, at work or in our community. We can teach our children to do this as well. We should always keep in mind ways that we might contribute.
I have recently cut back to working part-time while all my friends are fully retired. With some additional time on my hands, I pondered the question of what more I could do. It came to me that with all the expertise that I have in dealing with ADHD, I could start a blog. That is rather humorous when you know that I am so technologically illiterate that I know almost nothing about a blog and have never known how to even find a blog.
However, it seemed like that would be a good use of my talent and could help a lot of people who struggle dealing with this condition. So, I found someone to help me and I launched my blog. I don’t know if many will find it. But I know that those who do will be helped and with help, they can make the world a better place.
We all can ask ourselves if there is another way that we can contribute in a way that makes the world a better place.
