My purpose in this lifetime is to support people who are called to do ‘big things’. This takes many forms, but I work with people who know they want to do something that matters to them, and makes the world a better place.
For many years, I thought I was supposed to be DOING all the big things. Damn. That was exhausting!
Luckily I realized that’s not my job. My job is to be the space-holder, cheer-leader, strategist, healer, and guide for LOTS of other folks as they’re finding, and doing, their ‘job’ (aka Purpose).
Changing the world isn’t easy. It gets lonely. It isn’t always fun. And none of us feels 100% up to the challenge.
Here’s what I’ve come to understand:
There are no BIG things, there are only small things that add up to big things. Think about it. No one has ever written a book. They've sat down, day after day, and written words that would later become a book.
No one has ever built an empire, or made huge social change. They've stuck to their vision, and their commitment, day after day. With enough of those days strung together, massive things have happened!
This is exactly why I’ve created Study Hall.
We get hung up on HOW we’re going to do the ‘big thing’. I totally get it; this happens to me too.
This is where we get stuck. The ‘thing’ feels SO big we don’t know where to start. Or if we do, we’re not sure taking all these small actions will ever be enough to make a difference.
But remember — “There are no big things.” Yeah. This is the paradox. It turns out the little things are the ONLY things that matter.
[ Study Hall ] is where the small things lead to big things.
