Many people have dreams of changing the world for the better. However, this is a very big task to take on. As a matter of fact, it is way too big for someone to do all by himself. As a matter of fact, if he tries to do too much at once, he will burn himself out. This is why it is important for people to not only take smaller steps, but to decide on which steps they are going to take. One of the best ways to improve the world is by working within one’s own community. While there are a lot of problems that could be fixed globally, people that focus on their communities are likely to be more effective in their solutions.
Highland Capital is an example of getting involved in local communities. James Dondero and plenty of others that are involved in local charities are working to improve as many aspects of the community as needed. Among the aspects of the community they are hoping to bring improvements to are education and health. When there are problems in these two aspects of the community, it can carry over to other issues.
One good thing that Highland Capital does is look at the different local nonprofits and see what they do and how they help the communities. This is one of the ways they decide on whether or not the charity is worth donating to. They also look at the reputation and track record of the nonprofit organization. James Dondero himself is especially willing to help schools of business because one of the keys to success is gaining skills at business and marketing so that one can make profitable decisions. Regardless of the industry one is in, there are basic and universal business skills that are needed in order for one to have a successful career building his own business.
