Suffering at work?

When work is transactional, everyone suffers.

To counter the temptation, over-focus where you used to under-focus or ignore…

And it may take years or decades to learn to:

  • Live within your means
  • Invest early (age 20-30) to enjoy the magic of doubling
  • Make your get-to-do greater than your have-to-do
  • Discover what you were born to do
  • Balance mind, body, spirit, work, & home
  • Teach others

Transactional work hides the artist within.

The world needs artists. You need and want to be an artist.

We all do.

Suffering Through Leadership

Five miles from the nearest paved road, we set out in the pitch dark…

If you just came from jeff, you saw the insight on suffering. Saturday night, we were scared. On a weekend Cub Scout camping trip, we went for an hour hike, in the (4,700-acre Forever) Florida wilderness.

Thirty minutes out. Thirty minutes back. In the pitch dark. No flash lights. No moon. Just dark.

Bravery isn’t absence of fear, nor the mastery (as some suggest) of fear. Bravery is the habit of confronting your fears – the essence of a great leader, anywhere.
