Work for yourself by working for others.
Work for yourself by working to help others.
Work for yourself by being more than the sum of your parts.
Since perhaps your purpose is an extension of everyone you know or can reach.
Work for yourself by looking at your own Balance Sheet from time to time.
Not just the one that’s expressed in dollars,
But the one expressed with assets like integrity, impact and connections made,
And liabilities such as tense relationships, regrets and pain experienced.
Work for yourself by walking the tightrope between spontaneity and structure,
Ambition and reflection, advice and personal action.
Work for yourself 24/7, or at least aspire to.
After all, if you get it right, life will probably work for you.
