Is good for saving parking spaces
And the best seats in a restaurant,
But not for the work you need to do and
The contribution you were born to make.
That work is not reserved for a better time
When you have no doubts,
Or for another person with stronger arms
Or deeper pockets.
Doing work that matters is not reserved for people that have great jobs
Who went to the best schools
And have a good track record.
It is for people that show up
In ways that truly matter.
Writing is not reserved for the geniuses
Who seem to have had their pens dipped in something divine,
It is for those who choose to write.
Doing is not reserved for serial “doers”
It is for those who choose to do.
