Are you entering into your day with a plan?
At the very least, do you have in mind something lofty you’ll be pursuing today?
Do you listen to, watch, read, or talk about doing work that matters?
Follow your heart today. It will take you to a good place.
And you deserve to go to a good place.
The answer to yesterday’s overlooked secret?
It’s, um, well, it’s Mr. Establishment.
Others call it Ms. Status Quo.
Ironically, we have become this person, and if we haven’t yet, then we report to her.
Everyone wants a breakthrough. But no one is prepared to.
It’s simply a very good time to blend in, to do what you’re told and follow orders.
Makes me want to throw up.
Maybe I just need another year or so of our son waking up (frequently), screaming uncontrollably, in unbearable pain. And a marathon round of tests revealing nothing.
Or maybe a heart attack.
Maybe then I’d remember why doing work that matters, matters.
Wow, the morning-sickness feeling is gone.
Regret that you tried and failed, or regret that you just didn’t try?
Great things are not done by impulse, but by a series of small things brought together. – Vincent van Gogh
Each day, move a little closer to your goal.
Don’t lie to yourself. There is no other way.
If you want to do great work, work that matters and makes a positive difference, work that multiplies and spreads, you are going to have to choose.
Do you ever think like this?
Do you want to make a difference, but find it challenging to get started? Have you gotten started, but find the path difficult?
This is why you are going to have to choose.
