A thought experiment:
If you could – if you would – bring your best self (imaginative, engaged, energized, creative) to work today, what exactly would that look like? What would it feel like?
What are the conditions that would make that possible?
What are the conditions that would make you say, “yes?”
Anything less than that, whatever that is for you, is insufficient to your human experience.
This is not a negotiation. This is the best of who you are. Find the place, find the people, and live into it as fully as you can.
