When it comes to voluntary service one must experience the benefits that come with it to know that the ROI is staggeringly high!
Most think that it is a waste of time to volunteer, and the opportunity cost is not justified. On the contrary, the skills you learn leading voluntary groups are difficult to learn elsewhere. You learn interpersonal skills, leadership, time management, patience, tenacity, as well as many other skills while working with people who don’t get paid. You are inspiring the team not with money, but with a cause – a purpose. This requires a different and more powerful skill. This is tangible ROI!
For me, whenever I start my morning with voluntary work, the day flows smoothly and effortlessly. This is Intangible ROI! I don’t need a bigger justification for continuing to do voluntary work!
