I have spent a fair amount of time in the business world since I have graduated college and I have learned a lot over the past 5 years. But there was something that I was thinking about today after reading a few comrade’s blog posts, or emails and there was something that spoke to me the most.
The communications and writings that I felt were the best were the ones were I could sense their personality coming through the words. It was the writings that I could see they were being their true selves that I loved. The words that they were writing were honest and true. It was almost as if I was just having a conversation with them, rather than reading something that they wrote. The words weren’t rigid, or hard, or cold, seemingly trying to be professional because you can still be professional while being you.
It reminded me of the importance to being you in everything you do. We are all people in this world trying to connect with other people. If you are constantly just going through the motions of life, you are depriving other humans from learning from you, and connecting with you. But when you bring your true self to the table, everyday, it only makes the world a better place.
