Your work is to discover your work,
and then with all your heart to give yourself to it.

There can be no happiness
if the things we believe in
are different from the things we do.

After a visit to the unexpectedly snowy campus of University of Wisconsin –
Stout this week, I headed to the northeast for a conference (more on that
next week). Along the way I met a new friend (who happened to be a
long-time eRipples subscriber….how small is this world?!!). In a lively
discussion about what makes a person successful in their work, Kevin
shared that the people he most admired were people who gave their
HEART to their work, in addition to their best efforts.
It struck a chord in me, as I am just diving into a really cool book by
Yahoo’s Tim Sanders called “Love is the Killer App: How to Win Business
& Influence Friends.” It reinforces my belief that success in business
(and in life!) depends upon your ability to GIVE more than you GET
(Sanders calls this “Bizlove”!). Bring some bizlove to your work this week
by leading with your heart!
