And I love them.
Lead me to a new way of working. For the current way is draining me. And I refused to be drained any more. There is a better way and I plan to follow you there. But if you don’t lead me…
Follow me. Because I intend to get there and take everyone that I can with me. Why? Because it energizes me. And the more that can follow me there, the better. The Law of Scarcity does not apply where I am going. There is enough for everyone.
To those that will follow: be warned. The road will not be easy. It will be risky. We don’t know the exact path to take. We are forging a new trail. We may go down one route and learn that it leads to a cliff. Then we will turn around, retrace some steps and find another way. It will be tiresome. Exhausting mentally, physically, politically. But it will be the ride of your life. And when we have created this new place it will be exhilarating.
And to those who will try to stop us – you know who you are. To those who will say that we are crazy for trying something new. That we can never change the way we work. That the Future of Work is a pipe dream. That we are spending our energies chasing something too big to tackle.
To them I say, I’m sad for you. You have given in. You have been sucked in to believe that there won’t be a better way in our lifetime. But there will be. And I intend to get there.
I have no doubt that what we are creating is monumental. It will make all the difference in your working life. In your real life. And if not in yours, than I am doing this for your children.
So, walk with me. And if you can’t walk where I will walk,
Get out of my way.
