To get and to give

We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give
Winston Churchill

It's extraordinary to learn how many projects and project managers are engaged in public service and voluntary efforts, lending the project skills they "get" from their paid work to effort they "give" away.

It's been recently estimated that more than 63 million Americans are actively engaged in volunteer work...that's a blessing of our demographic metric of 330M citizens...and a fair number of them are engaged in real projects....as different from day-to-day volunteer operations. And the projects are everything from building houses to putting in water systems to putting up food banks.

If you're looking for a "life", volunteering your PM skills may be the way!
