At the top of my computer monitor, on a piece of white artist’s tape, I’ve written “How will you show up today?”
It’s a reminder that everything I do is a choice. I can choose to slack off, or work with focus and intention. I can choose to show up to Zoom meetings without distractions, or with them. I can choose to be a professional or an amateur. I can choose to listen to the tired, the fear, the guilt, the shame, or I can choose to ship work and ignore the inner monsters.
There isn’t a lot in life we have total control over, but how you show up every day is one of them.
How will you show up today?
