INITIATIVE is the privilege of picking yourself. You're not given initiative, you take it. Pick yourself. Vulnerable Taken from: V is For Vulnerable by Seth Godin
This short quote strikes me as the perfect thing to power up a Monday. It's not about setting unattainable goals or crafting brilliant art or selling the unsellable. It's about the essence of what it is to be human. It's a reminder that when you get up 30 minutes early in the morning so you can enjoy a cup of tea and some time with a pen and a blank sheet of paper, you pick yourself. When you speak up during a conference call no matter how awkward it is to interject, you pick yourself. When you volunteer to make the costumes for your child's school play even though you haven't sewn a lick since 7th grade, you pick yourself. When you make that call that starts it all, whatever that thing is, good or bad, you pick yourself.
