“…impact, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder”
Before you read this post, lets first get out of head that popularity means you’re not doing purposeful work. That is the FURTHEST from the truth. There’s nothing wrong with being popular!
Now that we got that out the way, let’s get to it! It’s been a minute!!! I’ve been away, deep in Tax Season Valley! My busy season (kind of) ended last week, and I “celebrated” by having a spa day! I stayed behind and enjoyed the amenities this time, and used the alone time to really reflect on the work I’d done, and will continue to do, going forward. One thing I asked myself was, “What do I want my impact to be?” I further thought on if I’m moving in a way that communicates that, AND do people SEE me doing this work? I thought about how impact, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder. What is impactful to me, may not be impactful to the next. I also asked myself, would I continue to do the work, if I never got recognition, but was sure that I was making impact.
