In 2017, I have spent time reflecting on the concept of peace. I love the Hindu scripture that says, “Peace does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work. Peace means to be in the midst of all those things and still be calm in your heart.” In the social sector, we live this mantra every day and need to practice radical self-care to help ensure our collective calm heart while we tackle some of the most entrenched social problems. I was recently asked by the Junior League of Dallas to share my “Top 10 Life Hacks.” These are lessons I’ve learned and earned through my two decades in the nonprofit sector, as well as some great ones from my friend, counselor Karla Zemler. They were so well received that I wanted to share them with you as you reflect on 2017 and plan for a peaceful 2018.
