The more successful you are, the less accessible you’ll become.
We react to this truth in two ways:
- Refuse to face this reality: Lead to burnout by trying to be there for all people
- Use our success to become more inaccessible than necessary. Unawareness becomes bliss.
You can’t shut it all out.
You can’t take it all on.
Do for one what you wish you could do for everyone.
Myth: We have to be fair.
Truth: Fairness ended in the Garden of Eden
Don’t be fair. Be engaged.
- Go deep rather than wide
- Go long-term rather than short term
- Go time not just money
When we do for one, we often end up doing more for just one.
