        • Meaning/helping people

          A very interesting read: "I could do anything, if I only knew what it was" by Barbara Sher.
          In relation to step 1, meaning and helping others, this book gives a perspective that helped me letting go of beliefs about 'passion' and the idea of being selfish when pursuing things for myself and not 'for helping others'.

          "You have to forget whatever you were taught about 'meaningful work' and start noticing whatever has meaning to you. [...] The very first step to finding work that fits you is to understand the connection between doing what you love and doing something…

          • Prayer is a highly effective way to change our world. Research here is neglected. I so wish this was an area of consideration!

            Fund highly effective prayer studies with input from people highly skilled in prayer along with scientists who are open-minded to creatively work with interfaith communities to design these studies. The impact of prayer on world problems is a needed area of study that needs funding--the most effective types of prayer especially. Your consideration is appreciated.

                            • Twitter links on pages don't have pre-written text!

                              Every time I try to share your article through twitter (by clicking the tweet link above the article), I get a popup ready to post to twitter with the link to your article, BUT THERE IS NO PRE-WRITTEN TEXT (like a copy of the article title).

                              I know it's not much work to copy/paste the article title, or to write my own text, but I suspect there are many people who want to share your post on Twitter but are too lazy to write in something.

                              I think you're missing out on some re-tweets ;)
