In order to make a difference we have to be different. We have to think outside of the usual mindset of “go with the flow.” When you are making a decision to produce something that makes a difference it’s going to be life changing for you as well as those receiving this gift. For example, Steve Jobs as many know was quite “different” than other engineers but he made a difference like no one else has with computers as the Apple products display. Instead of focusing on what everyone else in the industry was doing Jobs perfected the PC into a cell phone. Jobs didn’t compete with Microsoft he exceeded them. The idea of making a difference is not about trying to reinvent the wheel but perfect your niche so much that it stands out among your competitors.
