By Jim Weaver, COO of The Ōnin Group I hear a lot of people, particularly young people, talk about their desire to have an impact. I can relate to the desire to live a life of significance, and I feel an instant connection to anyone with this mindset – we are kindred spirits. Unfortunately, I have seen a lot of folks get tripped up in their pursuit of impact, falling far short of this grand vision for their lives. For many, the once inspirational desire to have an impact morphs over time into a gnawing, almost cancerous, sense of lack and emptiness. This “lack” mindset tends to lead to behavior that further undermines our ability to have an impact accelerating a very negative cycle. This is a cycle many never break out of.
