“I should prefer to lack success than to lack faith” – Seneca
While doing work that matters in the marketplace, what is success without faith? What is faith without success?
- Without faith that our work creates a better future, we’re punching the clock. Given that time is finite, and given that there are causes out there worthy of our time, why pursue this work without faith?
- Without success as a result of our faith, be it in learning, awareness, or disruption, we simply dreamed. ‘Meditation’ without subsequent ‘action’ is merely ‘sitting quietly’.
What we believe about our work is as important as the work itself. Otherwise, the work doesn’t get done.
