“What matters most in the end, though, is this: Your belief in your capacity to create positive change and the courage to take action.” – Tom Kelley
Reducing the above quote to two questions:
Can you make a difference?
I believe in the concept of having “agency.” You develop agency by building upon existing skills and adding to them. You develop agency by attacking harder things on a regular basis and gaining competency from the learning. You develop agency by learning from experience, which causes you to be wise.
Will you make a difference?
If you have agency, it’s a crime to waste it. In order to make a difference you have to be willing to step up. To keep your talents, skill and wisdom hidden when it has a chance to make a difference, deprives the team and the community. There may be uncertainty. You might doubt and have a little fear. But, the willingness and courage to step over the edge will be rewarded with a meaningful life.
Strive to be able to step up. Have the courage to do so.
