“If all you do at work is hope to survive, your day can’t be much fun. We’re all working too hard. Putting in more hours than we’d like, nervous about the future, uncertain about our roles and our goals. We work too hard to hope for mere survival. Our goal must be to thrive and prosper, not just get by.”

BKB Notes: This is an argument for setting a Daily Highlight. Be sure to make time for your prosperous work before spending all of your time just trying to put out fires. Many of these fires will put themselves out or weren’t as big of fires as they seemed at the beginning.
