After months of studying my unique purpose, I eventually came up with two phrases which describe it. I am here to enhance efforts and inspire growth. They are similar enough, but I couldn’t figure out how they relate to each other.
Until the other day, when wife gave me just the right phrase to tie them together.
Leadership Vacuum is an experiment in encouraging others to fill the void of leadership at home, at work, and personally. It is also a lesson for me to understand discipline and creation and shipping ideas. Not to mention learn about leadership. Yet it is no longer the priority.
It’s time to prioritize the one thing I will absolutely regret not doing before I die.
We know it is silly, yet we all fall for it. It’s a trap which keeps us going on a treadmill of misery. We wake up every day trying to be better, stronger, and faster. But the problem is not the desire.
The problem is how we assume it is even possible to be better, stronger, and faster at everything. We believe we can have it all. What a lie! Let’s stop believing it already.
What good is money to you? Is it stuff? Is it status or power? Nothing is wrong with these. However, I find that when most people say they want more money, they really want options.
But what if you could have options now?
Some of us have a serious problem not helping others. We give time, resources, and money until we are overbooked, drained, and broke. We give until we are bitter, empty, and exhausted. And sometimes, we are sad we couldn’t help more! This is a problem.
You enjoy helping people. I have the same disease. Why say no when it’s only a little inconvenient? Why charge money when you can give it away? Why not go the extra mile, and the next?
Because it’s selfish.
