Sometimes we compete on price not value. Sometimes we attribute the basest of motivations to others and similarly justify our own slide. Sometimes, when we notice what others are doing, we withhold, we protect, we do the minimum, we go through the motions, we complain. Sometimes we race to the bottom where we all lose.
Such races are neither required nor inevitable. We race there out of habit and out of fear.
We can also race to the top where we all win. We can engage, give with no need for return, lean in, teach, lend a hand, and compete on value and love. We race here when we remember how great it feels, how very real problems melt away, and how all the benefits arise from simply participating.
In your corner,
