Whose Mission Is It?
Every morning we wake up, get dressed and go to work. We do this to - actively or passively, overtly or implicitly - deliver 'something' as part of that work.
That 'something' furthers an agenda, a mission, a cause, a goal.
The question is: whose mission is it? Whose agenda? Yours or someone else's?
There's certainly nothing wrong with accomplishing a mission that you yourself didn't come up with - but only if you've bought into it.
And the only way you could have done that is if you had actively considered it, evaluated it and decided you were committed to it.
You don't have to be an 'entrepreneur'. That's not what this is about. But you have to make decisions as if you are one. Because, even when you're working for someone else, you are essentially your own entrepreneur, within your own career.
So buy into the mission you have now, or buy into a different one. It's your choice.
But you have to buy into something.
Otherwise, you're simply wasting your time.
