Delay. Delay. Delay. Your powerlessness is your choice.
Anne Frank wrote, "How wonderful it is that nobody need
wait a single moment before starting to improve the world."
Have you given up on the idea of being powerless?
Do you believe that no one will listen to you?
Do you believe that the only way for you to be heard
is to join others and shout and shake your fists at the heavens
and rage against the unfairness of your situation?
To be clear there are situations where joining others in protests
makes perfect sense. Many of you attempt to create cabals of criticism
rather than take action to change things.. Worst of all, you become resigned to the
impoverishment of your life, in your career. If your career leaves you
feeling destitute or devoid of feeling what can you do
differently, if your workplace has sapped the life
out of you because you just don't care about what you do,
the fault doesn't lie in the workplace. The fault lies with you
for tolerating it. Change careers. Change jobs. Change managers.
Change your commute. What can you do to improve the world?
Anne Frank wrote a diary that has moved tens of millions of people. She died at
age 15 a few weeks before the liberation of the
concentration camp she and her sister were in.
15 years of age. She changed humanity without a doubt. What change can you
bring about?? Start small and work up.
Start big and create steps. Start.. Don't overthink it. Do something, not
nothing. You have an opportunity ahead of you
during the remainder of your life and your career. What are you going to do?
When will you start? How about today?. Thanks for listening. I release in text
format on medium almost every day. Follow me on medium
and you'll find a lot more have a terrific day
and be great
