Enjoy this excerpt from Project Inspiration: Quotes from the Human Side of Project Management
Everyone must work to live, but the purpose of life is to serve and to show compassion and the will to help others. Only then have we ourselves become true human beings.”
– Albert Schweitzer
Maybe you work in an industry or occupation where compassion is an obvious and traceable part of your job. By traceable I mean that your compassionate behavior is reflected in the type of work you do and that based on your line of work I expect you to be compassionate. Some examples; hospice workers, fire fighters, clergy, emergency response teams, project managers, information technology professionals and other professionals.
Wait a minute! What are project managers, information technology professionals and other professionals doing on the list? OK, so you were paying attention, good!
You do not have to be in a specific line of work to serve others and show compassion. When you see a hospice worker staying after work to read a book to a cancer patient, the compassion is obvious. When you see emergency response teams leave their families to provide food, shelter and medical care to disaster victims you see a willingness to help others.
You do not have to wait for an extreme situation to serve others. You do not have to travel to faraway lands during a crisis to show your humanity. You can do it every day. You can do it at work and you can do it at home. Compassion and service to others does not have to be part of your official job title for you to make it part of your official role of being human.
