…I have a colleague who recently brought his professional mindset clearly to the point. He said:
“I strive to serve the individuals that I accept in my circle of people. Sometimes I will get paid immediately for my service. Sometimes I will be paid in the future, sometimes even by different people, sometimes never. Either way, I am doing it because I believe in my service!”
What a bold mission statement! This mindset is both professional and liberating. He is truly dedicated to client service, but remains independent. He decides who enters his circle. And he decides to deliver his service. He is not asking for any approval by people served. He is just applying his own principle of service because he believes in it.
I definitely admire this professional mindset and truly hope that it inspires you, too.
