What You Do

Let the beauty of what you love be what you do.

~Rumi

I just have to share this quote, one of my favorites, one that’s easy to remember, one that inspires me to follow my heart. I came across it again recently when going through some note cards I had created for a friend, and then I saw it in one of my new inspirational books for 2020: Daily Joy: 365 Days of Inspiration, Photos, and Wisdom to Lift Your Spirit.

I remember challenging myself with this idea when I was working as a consultant and leader at IBM. How can I manifest what I love in the work I am doing? First, of course, I had to know what I loved. Eventually, after over 30 years of working professionally, I came to realize that what I love is feeling vibrantly alive. What I love is how I feel when I am fully present, open to what’s possible, and intentional, purposeful, passionate about my actions and impact. Tuning in to that brings me joy in anything I’m doing. Actually, it has a way of moving me from a place of doing to a place of being.
