Justin Zoradi is the founder of These Numbers Have Faces, a global education nonprofit. His most recent book, Doing Work That Matters, is available on his website.
In early 2010, after a few menacing weeks in South Africa, I was inches away from throwing in the towel on my fledgling organization. There was just too much evil in the world; too many dark forces keeping the poor in poverty and the rest of us too concerned with ourselves to do anything about it.
What saved me were the words of a friend. “Don’t make a decision in the dark that was inspired in the light.”
