No, this isn’t an ego post. It’s not driven by, “Oh, I really need to impress that Scottish/Canadian/Brit (what the heck is he??) Danny Brown guy.”
Screw that – ego is for chumps (hat tip Shannon Boudjema for the phrase).
But you seriously don’t need to impress me.
I’m not your life mate. I’m not your boss. I’m not your editor. I’m not your parents. I’m not your font of all wisdom.
But then, you don’t need to impress these people either (more on why you don’t need to impress your boss in an upcoming post).
Nope, the only person you need to impress is yourself.
If you blog and you hit publish and know that you’re happy with the post, that’s all that matters.
If you’re in business for yourself and you know you’re doing the best you can for your clients, that’s all that matters.
If you’re employed and know you’re doing all you can in your role, that’s all that matters.
If you look in the mirror at the end of the day and know you did every thing you could that makes a difference in whatever you do, that’s all that matters.
Impress yourself. The others will follow.
