Are you ready to get real?Feb 10, 2021
What is the work you're meant to do now?
Not the work you were born to do. None of us are born for a single purpose.
All of us are born with a social nature, a capacity for reason, and a creative instinct. Why not employ these impulses in the human work of making things better?
That's the real work. The work you're meant to do now in any given moment.
But where to start?
Start with who. Who are you? What are you good at? Where you belong?
What are your values and guiding principles? What are your talents and skills? Who do you know who shares your values and needs your skills to enhance their lives?
The intersection of your values, talents, and tribe is where you can discover the work you're meant to do now - an endeavor where you make a difference while you develop your potential and deliver on your promise.
Is that work important? Yes, that's what makes it fulfilling. Is that work challenging? Of course, that's what makes it worth it.
The difference only you can make isn't the work you have to do. It's work you get to do.
Are you ready to get real? Ready to discover, develop, and deliver the work you're meant to do now?
Let's go. Start leaning into the work right in front of you right now. Do it with and for those you find yourself with in this moment. Let's endeavor together to make things better.
