"It's more fun to be a pirate than it is to join the Navy"~ Steve Jobs. Today is International Talk Like A Pirate Day and the question is, are you working to 'conform' or are you working to 'perform'?
Are you talking like a pirate or a sailor? What are you doing to push your performance beyond the frame of that job description somebody wrote for you? The goal today should be to blow up that restrictive frame and stretch yourself.
1. Let's be clear, I'm not talking about the Navy and sailors in a literal sense. Your 'Navy' and role of 'sailor' is the frame you make for yourself given your situation. It is not a negative, it is our reality.
2. Getting out of the 'Navy' may not be possible in your current role (and it's what pays your bills!) This is the perfect time to talk about extending your passion and talents as a side hustle.
I love the photo attached to this post. Clearly this is a pirate in action. Forget what they told him about the way to hold the flag or what to wear, this is an opportunity will never come again. This is obviously a pirate having maybe a little too much fun.
Be Bold. Be Great. Be a Timeless. Aaarrr!
