The power in a meaningful company doing work that matters is in the people’s will to sustain the pursuit of being better. Nobody can take that away from you besides you.

How do we love our work properly?
- When we enjoy it and want to keep doing it over and over again, that’s indulging, not loving. It satisfies us, but we give it nothing in return.
- Beyond enjoyment is investment. Here we give as much as (or more than) we get. We care for it, ensuring it grows, thrives.
It’s the difference between the designer who likes to make every website look the same vs the one who says, “This may not work, I’m going to find out and respond accordingly.”
Or the amateur runner who keeps running the same block vs the one who enrolled for the London Marathon while it still scared them.
If you love it, you’ll let it grow.
