Listening for the answers to the right questions

Yesterday morning, reading the news over morning coffee, I said to Ken out of the blue: “Know what I really would do if I won a big lottery? I’d become Vancouver’s full-time philanthropist.”

Since I’ve been thinking about where I want to end up, where I want my skills to take me, this is probably a big clue.

Two people separately sent me a link to a volunteer opportunity this past weekend. They both read the description and immediately thought of me because a) the skills requirements match my skill set and b) it would be a way of meeting more Vancouver people and getting to know this town better.

Asking the right questions is the first step. Listening quietly for the answer is the next.
