Authority is overrated
“Many people struggle at work because they want more authority. It turns out you can get a lot done if you just take more responsibility instead.”
How many important actions are put off because you think it’s required?
So, you wait…and wait.
Only to discover that what you’ve been waiting for is an illusion.
Instead of waiting for authority, start taking responsibility.
Here’s a list of game-changing choices that don’t require outside approval:
Choose an optimistic point of view
Provide someone with sincere praise and appreciation
Commit to joyful movement
Improve a professional skill
Devote time to something (or someone) you love
Move out of your comfort zone
Show genuine interest in others
Give yourself permission to rest
Ask for help
Write down your vision and goals
Eat food that energizes your body and soul
Wait for authority or take responsibility.
The choice is yours.
