As we mature professionally, we cross over different points in time where our stance changes. One of the most exciting transformation occurs when you begin working for a mission rather than a person. This transformation begins a cascading change in perspective that has the potential to unlock a powerful force that is within each of us. We begin to re-define our purpose and receive our validation form mission aligned accomplishments. My personal experience of such a transformation is as follows:
We place principals over personalities and learn to except people for who they are.
This reduces the impact of personality conflicts during project execution and aligns incentives to a common purpose.
We turn knowledge into wisdom by combining our past experiences and expertise towards solution driven thought.
The how turns into how to. We no longer ask how, but rather create a path to providing a clear direction that results in achievement.
We begin with the end in mind by making each movement more efficient and focused.
We desire to replicate ourselves and gain value through mentoring and teaching others.
We become indispensable by attempting to be dispensable.
We think big, dream big, and believe it’s not a matter of if, but when. We settle in and move forward towards accomplishing the mission.
