Doing Good for No Good Reason Pays a Tremendous, Invisible Dividend

Updated: May 19

My name is Ed Pilot. I’m a lawyer by trade.

I know, I know, I know.

People have all kinds of thoughts about lawyers. Some of them, once in a while, are good. A few might even be grounded in reality.

What I learned most of all by being a lawyer is this: the good creates good.

I mean, sure, I work to pay bills. But I also do work pro bono. Know why?

Because it feels good.

Period. End of sentence.

For these reasons and others, I’m promoting the work of my good friend, Carl Stillitano. Carl’s a playwright who’s written a tremendous collection of what he calls transformative plays.

These plays are meant to be read aloud among friends and family.

Why are they called transformative plays?

Because each character in each play faces certain issues.

By reading that character aloud, you face those issues the same way that they would. And by facing those issues, you stretch. You grow. You learn about yourself.

You transform.

Consider what I learned from Carl’s play, “An Act of Kindness in the Bu.”

Life isn’t about what you have—your material things, your possessions, your stuff.

In the end, the worth of your life is measured by what you give from your heart.

That’s a message I think the world needs to remember, especially now.

And that’s why I’m so pleased to help Carl spread the word about his work.

Do something about your mental health. Read the Transformative Plays.
