With the limited time I do have, I volunteer more. Truthfully, there are many challenges I grow from AS a volunteer. I serve on the board of directors for an organization here in Washington DC, I also serve on an advisory committee that creates volunteer training, and serve on a 5k planning committee as a volunteer administrator. Each of these opportunities give me insight and present challenges I’ll never experience at my day-job. I use each of these opportunities to solve new problems and force myself out of a comfort zone.
