“No great deed, private or public, has ever been undertaken in a bliss of certainty.”
– Leon Wieseltier
This is something that we all need to grasp. Our lofty, childhood dreams to do good and noble work may never be reborn in midlife, because Leon is right.
Kids rarely walk from one thing to another. Why did we stop running everywhere?
“Whose life is it anyway”. — Brian Clark
You know what? I’m not sure where to begin on this one. Seriously. The quote is so intriguing, yet so open for interpretation.
If you’ve been in the workplace all your life and now into mid life, you are well aware of how “work” can own you.
Others may understand this, “You either run your business or it runs you”.
Or, no one ever said on their deathbed, “I wish I had spent more time at the office”.
No matter how you think about today’s quote, it certainly does make you think, doesn’t it?
But does it call you to any action?
