You take or wait to get??

Most people spend a lot of time to get an education.

They wait for the teacher (hopefully a great one) to give them something of value.

Many employees do the same thing at work. They wait for a boss (hopefully a great one) to give them responsibility or authority or experiences that add up to a career.

A few people, not many, but a few, take. They take the best education they can get, pushing teachers for more, finding things to do, exploring non-defined niches. They take more courses than the minimum, they invent new projects and they show up with questions.

A few people, not many, take opportunities at work. They have the easiest time of this but don’t do it nearly as often as they should.

What have you taken today?

    Guess what? Just recently I have taken on a HUGE assignment – all on my own and the way I am going about it dh is wondering where the entrepreneur was hidden in me all these years! 🙂

    I remember taking a lot while at CMU and now, I take a lot at work – sometimes too much to keep myself busy all the time! And this time, I took a huge performance “acknowledgment” in return, from my boss because of that! 😀
