Dr. Jordan Kassalow, founder of VisionSpring, the groundbreaking venture that has restored eyesight and hope to millions of people across the globe, has the answers: here, now, and in your own way. Sharing his personal story of integrating real-world responsibilities with his desire to make a difference, Kassalow offers a practical way forward, custom-made for each person’s unique talents and circumstances, to move from thought to action.
By exploring key questions about strengths and interests, personal resources, core beliefs, and most cherished values, Kassalow offer the motivation and the tools to start repairing the world in a way that is meaningful, fulfilling, and true to you.
In a world awash in need, it’s easy to give in to anger, frustration, and powerlessness, to let cynicism consume your natural optimism and hunger to build a better world. The soulful and pragmatic approach in this remarkable book will help you see with your heart and use your head to invest in your highest goals—while still earning a paycheck, being there for those you love, and enjoying life. To dare to matter, today.
