if we chose to:
Get better at setting and honoring deadlines
Help one more person, each day
Sit in the front row
Ask a hard question every time we go to a meeting
Give more and take less
Learn to master a new tool
All of these are choices, choices that require no one to choose us or give us permission.
Every time I find myself wishing for an external event, I realize that I'm way better off focusing on something I can control instead.
