Did you ever hear artists or writers talk about their ‘body of work’?
It’s what they create, what they contribute to the world during their lifetime.
I’m not an artist. But I do consider that I have a responsibility to my body of work.
What’s my body of work?
It’s me. My life.
All that I am.
Because all that I am profoundly affects those I am connected with.
I believe that my life matters.
It’s the vehicle from which I contribute to the world.
And my contribution is important.
Your contribution is important too.
Maybe you’re not sure exactly what your contribution is.
Nevertheless, it exists.
Just by being in this world, you are having an effect on all people and things you come into contact with.
So the way I like to look at it, is that YOU are your body of work.
Your brain, your ideas, your feelings, and your physical being.
You house the essence of you.
And you owe it to the world to be your best.
So if you feel like it doesn’t matter what you do, or whether you take care of yourself or not, or that being your best isn’t worth the effort, you are wrong, my friend.
You are your body of work, and it all matters.
What do you want to work on to be your best?
