Good Men Project: Why Teach? Why Do Anything?
After a day of teaching is over, you don’t have to find other ways to make the world a better place—you do it daily. …Focusing on helping others is very different from focusing on how much money you can earn or how you can stand out. It changes how you view your own life. Standing out is isolating; helping is connecting. With the former, you feel bad if you aren’t at or near the top. With the latter, you can feel good about what you do even if no one, except for an occasional parent or student, recognizes it.
