Some of us talk about ‘changing the world’ and some of us do it. As they say, ‘the devil is in the details’ and that is exactly where where Global PACT’ers are most focused. How something gets done is just as fascinating as the actual achievement of the goal.
But, I’ve got to say though, that when things finally happen, the fruits are quite sweet.
Today I spoke to Michael Shafer, Global PACT founder, for our weekly check-in on Global PACT - Thailand and this time it was all about the fruits of hard work. From building, staffing, and nurturing children to fill two Children’s homes not to mention the water well, water tower, a biomass power project so close we can taste it, the soon-to-launch Warm Heart Online Store, and the new Shafer - Schecter home nearby! Wow, I just had to take a moment and absorb all that has been accomplished in the last year.
I guess it didn’t sink in a few weeks back when my dad, who visited Warm Heart and is on the email list for the Warm Heart Newsletter, was blown away by the progress. My quick answer to his question “how did all that get done so quickly?” was “well, Shafer, Carole, Tara, P’Tie, P’Aoy, Evelind and a LOT of other interns, staff and volunteers worked very hard for more than a year to get it done.”
It somehow took a moment, which we should all take more often, to reflect and think about what’s been accomplished. Well done Warm Heart! Enjoy the moment. And, as Shafer would say, “Now, get back to work!”
