Your job, and leverage

If your life is one of service, then the one question to ask yourself when figuring out where you are and where you’re going is:

What role, what organization, what situation allows me to maximize the impact I’m having on others?

Most organizations find good people and ask little of them them.  Some organizations, sadly, even find great people and ask them to do mediocre work.

The best organizations take great people and help them be extraordinary.

It’s possible.

And the best part is that extraordinary feeds on itself.  Extraordinary creates more extraordinary.

    This is exactly what I’m struggling with right now. In the past, I’ve been frustrated by doing great work for organizations that while they appreciated it, weren’t structured to maintain it. I really want to plug into or create a project I’m passionate about and that is structured to allow the extraordinary in. Sigh. I’ll get there.

    I don’t have a shred of doubt that you’ll get there, Denise. Keep at it!
