- To hold closely as a sign of affection
- To receive gladly or eagerly; accept willingly
- To avail oneself of an opportunity.
- To adopt; as in a religion
You and I have a role on the project where we best fit. Our life purpose, talents, gifts, and abilities are all aligned to point to that role.
Unfortunately, some people resist their best role…and instead pursue (or accept) roles in a project that actually impede its progress and harm our careers. We all know of:
- Natural leaders who hold back and wait for others to take charge
- Parents who leave it to others to discipline their children
- Administrators who try to lead, rather than add synergy to the team
- Creatives who end up carrying project responsibility
Can you embrace your role – the place on the team where you best fit? Do you know where that is? Can you allow others to influence and shape your perception of your best role on the project team?
If you can do that consistently from project to project, you will find the joy in life that you were made for.
Thanks for listening.
