“And while we’re here, let’s get to our work!” Wes Moore closes his powerful Super Soul Sunday talk with these words having explained the importance in knowing the difference between our job and our work. Do these words excite you? Terrify you? Do they make you “nervicited” as my daughter likes to say? (nervous and excited mashup)
Regardless of how you feel about it, can you honestly say you are doing your work? Can you even name it? It took me over 20 years to figure out my work. My work is helping others to name their work and find a way to do their work at their job (when possible). I help people just like you to grow their choosing muscles so they can feel empowered to choose joy, choose to do their work no matter how much it scares them, and choose to be fully themselves in this world that doesn’t always respect that choice.
Please don’t put off your work any more. As Wes reminds us, no more days are promised. Let’s start doing our work today! As always, reach out if I can support you. The world needs more people doing their work.
