You were born to work hard

Notes from yesterday. The left list are words to describe a speaker style. The right list is: would you take one million dollars now or a penny that doubled everyday for 30 days.

You were born to work hard.

Not just physically, but emotionally, creatively, purposefully, and joyfully.

As if it were child’s play.

Avoiding career trauma

Spring Grove, PA
At the bottom of Main Street, next to the railroad tracks and the Paper Mill is this Apartment complex (an old hotel) where i lived as a toddler.

The most remarkable workers are the ones who are irrationally passionate about being remarkable.

Being remarkable is doing the same work that others do, but in a way that is different, refreshing, and better. The better and different way is generally created by taking small risks to incrementally improve the traditional way. No one notices as it is being formed, until one day. These “changers” are called misfits, the crazy ones, the round pegs in a square hole, the dreamers.

To not perform remarkably, for them, would be trauma to their career.

The power of sincere feedback

College dining hall
Turned around last night to grab a photo of where we just finished eating dinner.
encouraging text message
This encouraging text message about my new Podcast arrived while we had dinner in Baltimore last night.

The power of sincere feedback. And i quote:

“Your joy is so pervasive in your delivery.”

A positive blind spot.

Didn’t know.

Why?

No one told me before.

It’s a hope that listeners feel it. Yet without validation, all you can do is wonder.
