The project you’re working on.
The brand you are building.
The service you are offering.
The person you are becoming.
We can spend so much
Of our valuable time and energy
Trying to sell our vision to people who
Routinely leave their wallets at home.
Trying to impress people
Who seem to make their mark in this world
By finding fault in just about everything.
Trying continually to have people reassure you
That your contributions matter
Or that you deserve to be here;
A pat on the back.
There is no way of ever knowing for sure
If you will ever receive a pat on the back from the
People you crave to get one from.
Some people will never “get it”.
Don’t wait up.
