As I sit here in Orlando’s International Airport, I’m putting out my first post on my blog.
This blog will feature ideas and musings on business, leadership, organizational management, women in business and more.
The title of the blog refers to the quote by author, civil rights leader and philosopher Howard Thurman: “Don’t ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive and then go do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” I love the sentiment of this quotation, though, of course, I might sprinkle it with a dash of realism when setting sail on your career path.
In any case, finding the best parts of your work – connecting with co-workers, seeking out projects that you care about or ensuring that there is a satisfying reward during your break time are all things to pursue to help you come alive at work.
