Every so often, I write a variation on this blog. It’s a good idea to remember how your writing has not only changed your life, but other people in your world.
When I look back at all the writing I’ve done in my life these are some of the effects of my writing:
- Helped transform developer specifications to manufacturing specifications that launched new products
- Helped computer users learn how to use software
- Helped online entrepreneurs sell products on their websites
- When I was a Sustainability Director for a non-profit:
- Created a green business program for the City of Chicago
- Wrote brochures that sold companies on joining green business networks
- Wrote the applications for the awards the Waste to Profit network won
- Created a how to create by-product synergy networks guide for the EPA
- Created presentations for a Green Leadership Network
- Inspired clients to transform their lives for the better by losing weight, start and end relationships, change careers
- Motivated clients and friends to write their books
Hopefully, I also inspire some of you to honor yourself and your writing. I’m certainly not going to get a Pulitzer prize for the type of writing I’ve done in my life, but it made a difference. There are days when I need to look at my list and remember that my writing has made a difference in the world, and that I’m capable of making a difference again.
If you start to look over the course of your life, you can identify how powerful your writing can be in making the world a better place in practical ways, and inspiring others through your stories. Just for today, make a list of all the ways your writing has affected others in the past, present, and in the future if you like.
If you’re writing a blog, there’s a good chance that you are:
many people and uplifting their lives in some way.
Thanks for the world-changing work that you are doing!
