Your Daily Duty
Humans, while all very similar in genetic makeup, are also very different. This is becoming more so as the species expands and variability increases by nature of the numbers game.
Some amazing talents come out of this genetic soup, and we know (or will know) these people by virtue of their ability to express their talents. If they never do share their gifts however, we will not know them and our lives will not benefit.
I believe it is each person's duty as a contributor to society to find their special talents and to utilize them. Usually an individuals' talent is something that they enjoy doing, so this should be an easy task.
In the busy lives that we lead, the excuse of lack of time is given frequently and I understand that but don't support it. The beginnings can be quite simple and humble.
Set aside 5 or 10 minutes each day to demonstrate a skill that you have and share it with others. You might have a way with words, a caring heart, a gift of music, woodworking skills, or maybe are just really good at making people smile and laugh.
If that 5 or 10 minutes benefits you or someone else then that is great. If it turns into a hobby or career, that is even better.
