A day in the life of…

Posts Tagged ‘rules


In lieu of transitions at work and new responsibilities I’ve found myself varying in feeling excited for new achievements and intimidated by the enormous role I find myself undertaking. This morning I was feeling another rush of anticipation for Monday challenges, however while sipping my homemade white chocolate mocha before work, I realized I had yet to crack open the new issues of Entrepreneur magazine.

The Editor’s Note is one section I always read, this month it is titled “Rebel Yells” and goes on to throw a positive spin on disruption in business. As Editor in Chief, Amy C. Cosper says:

Disruption in business is a heady concept…when you disrupt something, you change the predicted outcomes.

Which is good right? Disruption in the form of positive change serves to bring the wow factor into your presentation, project and/or organization. The culture of change is a scary concept to accept because of the risks involved, who knows what will happen? Although as Amy says:

Staying true to your own mission is as important as changing someone else’s. If you surprise and delight your customers, that may be the only disruption you need.

So here’s to disruption, I know my last month has been beyond my imagination, but I truly love what I do and waking up every day to rise to the Challenge and create positive change makes every day completely worth it.

How are you creating positive disruption?

Life is not about comparing your path to others, or letting others judge you based on your dreams. It’s your life and your path is different from any others, don’t let stipulations or what others think stop you from going against the grain and taking your own journey.

Unknown to us there seem to be rules that apply to life. Who came up with them? No one knows but there are certain expectations passed from generation to generation.

  • Go to school
  • Stay trendy
  • Date
  • Graduate high-school
  • Go to a good college
  • Party hard
  • Graduate college
  • Find a good job
  • Get promoted
  • Find your soul mate
  • Get married
  • Have kids
  • Do something incredible so that you will be remembered after you die

Who came up with these rules and is it necessary to follow them? There are reasons why individuals are created unique, we each look different! Yet we struggle to maintain status, to look the same, think the same,  and experience the same feelings. Although there may be certain expectations others expect us to live up to, as unique individuals there is no need. Your life is your life for a reason, go with the unexpected, make change happen and, in the words of an icon:

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” – Steve Jobs
