The building blocks of any business or career is what we put in, not what we get out. What we get out is the byproduct of what we put in. I have noticed too many people enamored over their own business card title. “I am the manager”, I am the boss” or “I run the company” are common statements.
I challenge all who are in leadership positions of any kind to see it differently. And, if there is one or more persons reporting to you, you are in a leadership position, as small as it may feel. So, handle it with care. Who cares what your title is. Who cares how important we may be (even if only in our own minds). If we take care of the business, the business is more likely to take care of us. And if we do not take care of the business, I am positively sure that it is only a matter of time until it ends. Either voluntarily or not.
So remember to build the business wisely. After all, it is the building blocks towards your future. If you put the business over the business card, the sky is the limit.
