This week, I fought a bit of a lack of motivation. It wasn’t fun. Isaac reached out to me mid-week and asked how I was doing—and to be honest, I wasn’t sure what to say. But then I told him how I felt. And he told me, “I totally understand completely.”
Because it’s hard—you get all focused on laying bricks and you forget to look up and see what you’re helping build.
Isaac ended up sending me a ten-minute Voxer message about why we do what we do at Crash—it got me smiling, and I became really excited about our mission again.
I wrote about his Vox a bit more in detail for our weekly newsletter. You can check it out here. But my favorite part (and the part that sums up what Isaac told me) is this:
There is so much opportunity for anyone to launch a career they love, to do the things that make them come alive. You don’t have to just hope for the best. You can go out there and take it.
