I'm a book worm. I always have been, and until die or go
blind, I think I always will. There is just something about
holding a book and turning the pages and looking at a page full of
words narrow down into paragraphs and then sentences and words and
then connect again into a story that can make me feel happy or sad
or excited or any array of emotion that just makes me content.
My genre of choice is almost always fiction. There is
something about fiction that is utterly captivating and
forgettable to me. If I like a book, I thoroughly
enjoy it, and then promptly forget it. Usually. Nonfiction is
different though. I don't read a ton of it, but when I do, I
usually remember the book for years and take something important
away from it. The Charge by Brendon
Burchard is no exception. In the book, the author argues that
through a series of powerful yet simple actions we can increase our
levels of energy, engagement and fulfillment in life; if we stretch
ourselves in pursuit of greater joys and enthusiasms can can live a
charged life. And, of course he explains what a "charged"
life is, and how to "activate" it with the 10 "drives" that make us
human. Doing so may not be easy, but the results can be
My Drive for Contribution
I want to matter. I want to feel like what I do is
important and that I am leaving a legacy for my children that they
can be proud of. One of the things that I realized while
reading The Charge is that I may not be
the best at everything, but I am pretty darn good at some things,
and I should be proud of those things and should continue to share
that knowledge. Furthermore, it was really driven home to me
that so much of what I *do* is a contribution and does matter and
although it's certainly not everything, it certainly is something
and part of how I "gauge" the worth of my life.
So, in 10 years I may not remember everything about
The Charge, but I will remember that my
drive to contribute to the world in a meaningful way is important
to me and that it does bring me happiness and that was made clear
to me while reading Burchard's book.
