I am not sure if this resonates with you. But, this is something that’s been on my mind for a long time. I am looking for a discussion and I’m looking for feedback.
It’s January, and I’ve been thinking about the past and the future. I’ve been thinking about how 2014 should be about the gift of imperfection. I haven’t been working for a long time. I have been taking time off. I’ve been recharging my batteries, and I’m ready for the best year ever.
Every time I think about the past, I keep asking myself the same question over and over again. The reason I keep asking myself the same question, is because I believe that, we’re all marketers, and in a way, we’re all focusing on promoting who we are, what we do, and what we believe in.
Don’t get me wrong. I enjoy reading about what people are doing. And, I do think that it’s great that we’re allowed to share who we are and what we believe in. But, the question that I keep asking myself is this:
What would I do for the world if nobody knew I did it?
This is a hard question to answer. I believe that I started the vegetarian festival, not because I wanted people to know that I am a vegetarian or that I wanted to share that I was launching the festival. But, on the other hand, I wasn’t trying to be invisible either. I was proud of what I was accomplishing. The same happened when I published the books, Lizarraga and Fuzzy. I wasn’t trying to be invisible.
I share my views of the world. I share what I believe to be the right way to do business. I keep living my dreams, and my adventure has just started. But, would I do anything different if nobody knew?
Is there a point of nobody knowing?
