Who said it’s not about you?
Of course it is.
It’s all about you. It’s never been more about you.
Everyone you connect with is looking for your human touch.
A bit of YOU.
Therefor, your fingerprints need to be over everything you do.
I received an Amazon order; the driver knocked, stepped back and when I opened the door, he announced with a massive smile, ‘I’ve got two packages for Michael!’
‘I’m Michael!’, I said.
‘Well, it’s your lucky day’, he grinned.
‘What’s your name?’, I asked.
I wanted to thank Dennis by name, but also I wanted to pass on to Amazon how the driver made me feel.
Would I name check you?
And I’m not necessarily talking about your work, I’m talking about your interactions.
Are you bringing the best of you into everything you do?
Yesterday, I presented at the Adobe Change Makers Conference. One of my key messages was ‘to be brave’.
Afterwards, someone commented that they thought the general wisdom was ‘To keep your head down’.
What a shame.
Wouldn’t it be better if amazing, talented people brought their personalities with them and shared their brilliance?
I have a challenge for you – of course, I always do.
Make it about YOU.
Make your life such a masterpiece that people are instantly attracted to you. They want to know more about you.
Connect with you.
Be a part of you.
Because it always has been and always will be – about you.
Do you agree. I’d love to know what you think, you can leave a comment below.
