If you want to do work that matters, you need to choose:
Will you hide, or will you seek?
You can choose to hide from discomfort, skirt around chances to lead, avoid the risk of failure. There are lots of great hiding places out there.
Or you can learn to seek. To stand up, to seek out connections, to look for opportunities to take a risk.
Seeking is more difficult, and there’s a chance you might fail, but in seeking you discover that it’s more than just a game.
