It is impossible not to recognize that the state of our society, economy, and political arena is unstable. As individuals and organizations, we want to contribute, to make a difference. What gifts do we bring to this work? Duane Elgin, author of Voluntary Simplicity, asks us to audit our near gifts and our true gifts. We can have more clarity about how to create value and where to put our shoulders to the wheel.
