You May Not Be The Best Judge Of What Fuels You
Two comments from friends have landed with me recently. They’re stuck in my brain, so I know they’re important.
1 — “You seem more comfortable in your own skin these days”
2 — “You talk about solitude a lot, but you love being around people”
We think we know what gets the best from us, but we can get ourselves wrong.
1 — Work. I left corporate culture and started my own company. I thought I was doing OK at best (we still have a roof over our heads and food to eat) but others can see that this way of working suits me.
2 — Happiness. I often seek solitude, but socialising brings out the best in me, and I’d forgotten that.
People know you, care about you and gift you their insight. Listen.
