Recently, I was having dinner with a friend who is an attorney. He is thinking of getting into the restaurant and hospitality business and potentially out of the legal field. He started talking about why he wants to pursue this business and said something that really resonated with me. His exact words: “I want to serve you well and see you later. It’s just that simple.” All he wants is to interact with happy people and be able to say, “See you later!” That is pretty simple, right?
Often times, we get caught up in the details of work. What are we good at, what logically fits expectation, what is safe, what is the short term and long term outcomes of the work. These are all wonderful to consider, but if deep down in your heart you are not aligned with your work, it won’t matter. Dig deep and connect with your feelings. What matters to you? What do you truly want? When you align yourself with your emotions in this way, you would be surprised as to what you are willing and able to do, logistically, to make what matters to you work for you in your life.
