Is it that simple? Can you choose to make an impact?
Of course it is. You can choose to merely do your job, to meet spec and to follow someone else’s path.
Or, you can dig in and transform your contribution. You can level up, taking advantage of the world-changing array of tools and connections our new economy is making available.
Access to tools is a small part of it. Mostly, it’s about taking control over where you go and what you do with your gifts.
The dislocations of our time are significant, the sinecures are disappearing, there is real stress and pain as the world changes. We can’t control that, but we can control how we respond to it.
Those changes open the door for those that choose to stand up and learn to contribute. A chance to be put on the hook instead of let off of it.
