Reach out to someone that inspires you.
Who is on your hero list? Perhaps it’s someone who has your dream job, or a person whose work has influenced your path. Maybe it’s someone whose spirit inspires you to change the world. Today, we challenge you to contact them. Send a letter, send an email, find them on LinkedIn, or on Twitter (and use the hashtag #workonpurpose).
At Echoing Green, we do this all the time. Most recently, we reached out William Damon, Stanford faculty member and author of The Path to Purpose, a book that made the rounds on our team. After touching base over email, Echoing Green’s senior vice president Lara Galinsky was able to meet Damon for coffee while in California.
So what do you have to lose? Introduce yourself to someone you admire! Tell them how they’ve inspired you. Ask for a piece of advice. And let us know how it goes.
