I usually write volumes here and apologize for that. But today I am getting one of those crystal clear insights about this work. So here it is:
Let’s just enjoy this work. Before stories we couldn’t make it fun. It was too boring. OK that was then and now is now. Now we have stories. We can now officially, have been given permission to, have fun. That’s it. That’s the insight.
We sabotage our stories by worrying too much about stuff.
So when you go to start your next story (I get to work with the Mr. Positive team in a few hours and I’m counting the minutes and can already feel the laughter bubbling up in my heart) just walk up there and smile inwardly and realize that this is better than any drug, any drink.
You know it and I know it. So why are we holding ourselves back? Oh, really? We are going to spend the rest of our professional lives stressing about this work? Really? Uhh, count me out on that one. Life’s too short.
Let’s just enjoy this work.
