Caring is important. Caring about things that matter to us can help us do better work, only if what we care about is something that is in our locus of control. Caring about things that matter to us, but are out of our control, may make us seem empathetic or compassionate. However, if we don’t have the capacity to make a positive change in the areas we choose to place our care and concern, who benefits from our caring display? Nothing, no one, nowhere is the recipient of care without action.
