Be the spark

Our job, really, is do our job really well.

As a professional speaker, you want to organize yourself, the logistics, the speech, the timing, activities, and so on in such a way that the content becomes a spark for the audience.

To light a fire for transformation.

I suppose it is similar no matter what job people do.

  1. To be the best at what we do is really a selfish gift we extend to those around us. It’s like finding the fountain of youth, or wealth, or unbridled happiness and sharing in its endless supply.

  2. Patty, interesting metaphor as a selfish gift. It caused me to pause and start to feel the beginning of a guilty blind spot, until your second sentence.

  3. It is a wonderful thing to desire to take one’s profession to an art form. We can teach the skills of the job, but the truly engaged make the most of every nuance. At my previous job, I was technically excellent, but disengaged and disinterested in taking what I did to the next level. Now that I live my career passion (as you know, we share the same great job), I am daily working to make what I do an art form, as well. Thanks for a great post, Jeff!
