The secret of fortune is joy in our hands. – Ralph Waldo Emerson
What if today, right now, no jokes at all, you were actually in charge, the boss, the Head Honcho. Write the “call to arms” note you’re sending to everyone (staff, customers, suppliers, Board) charting the path ahead for the next 12 months and the next 5 years. Now take this manifesto, print it out somewhere you can see, preferably in big letters you can read from your chair.
You’re just written your own job description. You know what you have to do. Go!(bonus: send it to the CEO with the title “The things we absolutely have to get right – nothing else matters.”)
To: ALL EMPLOYEES
CEO i.e., The things we absolutely have to get right—nothing else matters.
Subject: The Future of Higher Self, Inc.
It has come to my attention that we need an immediate plan for future growth.
With very little contemplation I have arrived at the following plan:
WE WILL DO THE WORK.
WE WILL CLIMB TO THE HIGHEST RUNG OF THE ‘LADDER OF SELVES’.
BY DOING THIS WE WILL ALSO CLIMB THE LADDER OF SUCCESS, NOT ONLY IN OUR PERSONAL LIVES, BUT IN ALL AREAS OF LIFE.
AT THE END OF THE CLIMB, WE WILL BE FILLED WITH JOY, ON TOP OF THE HIGHEST MOUNTAIN, WHERE OUR VIEW IS UNLIMITED AND OUR JOURNEY IS UNIMPEDED.
Live long and prosper,
