You have permission …

… to take the simple path instead of the complicated path.

… to take time off to rebalance and think big thoughts.

… to find success while others struggle.

… to put your own name and identity out there before your company.

… to take a break after reaching goals.

… to work smarter instead of harder.

… to stay up late to finish a project you’re genuinely excited about.

… to ask for help.

… to fail.

… to do what you do in a whole new way.

You have permission to do all of this, as long as you areĀ doing instead of just hoping, stirring, thinking, and/or passively waiting for the world to do it for you.

Actions speak louder than words.
