Be Your Own Dream Boss

You are your own boss. Even if you work for someone else.

You decide when you wake up, what you do and why you do it.

Why are we such shitty managers of ourselves?

If you had a manager that talked to you the way you talked to you, you’d quit. If you had a boss that wasted as much of your time as you do, they’d fire her. If an organization developed its employees as poorly as you are developing yourself, it would soon go under.

Seth Godin

We need to treat ourselves like we would a well oiled organisation;

Set high expectations, but be realistic.

Apply pressure, but not too much.

Work hard, but not so hard that the work of living becomes unpleasurable.

Most importantly; have a vision, a mission and a purpose.

Your purpose is the reason you exist, your vision describes what accomplishing your purpose looks like, and your mission is the battle plan for how you’re going to get there.

Organisations who fail to define these things, fail to function.

People are the same.

If you don’t know why you’re here, why you’re doing what you’re doing, or how you’re going to do it… Something is wrong.

You’re the boss. Fix it.
