'Waste no more time arguing about what a good man should be. Be one.'
- Marcus Aurelius
Workplaces are full of nouns and adverbs.
Vision Statements. Mission Statements. Values Statements. Codes of Conduct. Policies.
As a child I was taught that a verb was a 'doing word.'
We need more verbs to bring our nouns to life.
To move from the passive to the active.
To declare through our decisions: 'I am.'
And to learn from what happens next.
We need to become who we are.
