|My love of this creative corner continues to grow, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t had challenging weeks. Sometimes inspiration is hard to find or I have low energy and lack mental space. Still, without skipping a beat, Chat Tech Newsletter celebrates its 3rd year this week! I consider this a success and a perfect time to share 3 things that got me this far.
If you can count on my team and I to deliver each and every time, we can build trust. Trust is the most important component in every relationship including the one with yourself. Succeeding consistently also shows resiliency and dedication.
Love & Passion
Not everyone has the privilege of making a living by doing what they love. I’m often reminded of how lucky I am. Solving puzzles and being a positive spark for the people I interact with has always been a passion of mine. Finding love in what you do or doing what you love enriches your life and makes a difference in what you put out.
Adapting to challenging situations and feelings by responding instead of reacting builds experience and strength. Resilience shows flexibility to adapt, succeed, and persist in the face of difficulties.
While there is a lot more I could say, one should practice being concise (bonus tip). My inspiration for this week came from International Day for Human Space Flight, which was this Wednesday. The day celebrates the first space flight and the first human being in space: the great Soviet cosmonaut, Yuri Gagarin. It’s admirable to hear stories of people who take very small steps each day and fail so many times with the goal of succeeding just once. Recently, I had the privilege of touring the Mission Control Center that was filled with people holding their breaths as Neil Armstrong landed on the moon on July 20, 1969. As I took the photo above, I thought of his famous words “One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” Sometimes, you take a giant leap while thinking it’s a small step, other times your small step to help someone becomes a giant leap in improving their life. The point is to keep taking steady steps towards what you believe is your purpose and destiny.
See you next week,
