If so, that sucks for you, and for those of us that actually want to accomplish shit! This can apply to any position you have in the business or personal world, but I am going to use the example of Mayor to explain my message.
Let’s take Mayor Joe Blow (clever made up name I know), you have two options; you either make use of that position (or title, or whatever) and do good things or you are doing nothing but filling the space…basically wasting your time and the people’s time. From my experience, and continuing with the example of Mayor, so many people make excuses as to why they can’t make change, make things better, or simply do something productive.
I can’t do “this” because the economy is bad. We can’t do that because the city has no money. That can’t be done because _____ (fill in the blank). The message here is simple, I don’t give a damn, YOU (me included) can do something. Stop filling space and be a Mayor worth remembering (or a garbage man, a writer, a coder, an engineer, etc.), at the very least you could be positive and lead by example.
This life is too precious, too exciting, too worth living…to simply occupy a space. Instead you need to own the space you are in and make it memorable for you, and those after you. Why would you not do anything and everything in your power to LIVE?
