A piece from my diary that feels appropriate to share in this moment. A hopeful note of where we are headed, together.
It’s not personal, it’s business. A disconnected mantra of our time worth some reflection. Maybe a good time for that is now. Work is always personal. What you do affects you. What you do affects those around you. When what you’re doing involves more than you, whether one more or many more, it becomes personal to more people. The effects of our actions are beyond our comprehension, and it’s our decision what we chose to do with ourselves in every moment.
There is an assumption that it’s essential to be as big as possible, reach as many people as possible, and as they say in meetings, reach critical mass. I always cringe a bit when I find myself in these meetings. I wind up with a giant headache. Being big for the sake of being big misses the spark that gives value to anything, at any size. Feel good about the process, and possibly have a lasting, positive, personal impact on people.
Focus instead on being good. Make being good, getting better, improving how you are and how you relate to what you do, be your full-time job. You will personally affect people. You will be fulfilled, every step of the way. And it will be profoundly positive.
Drop the pressure of trying to be fabulous. You are fabulous as you are. Drop the pressure to act out the successful version of yourself. Being you is unique, powerful, and full of limitless potential. Take your jacket off. Get comfortable, and begin in every moment.
