Reserved

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.
