Everyone is out here achieving! So much success. Keep it up. The world needs more of your work. ... Here's something else the world needs more of: You telling us how you did it. That's right, we need you to Share Your Work.
As I see it, sharing your work is what the dealmakers refer to as a win/win/win.
Win 1: You learn. Sharing your work identifies/reinforces/highlights the lessons you've learned from having done the work. That is, it turns your work into *experience* you can use again.
Win 2: We learn. Sharing your work gives us the opportunity to put what you've learned to work for us. That is, it turns your work into experience *we* can use. "On the shoulders of giants," as they say.
Win 3: People connect. Sharing your work puts you and your ideas in the stream. People talk. People comment. People link. People message. Who knows what happens next?
So here's the prompt: What did you learn?
Whether it's a lesson you've picked up in your latest meeting, on a recent project, through your years on the job, or somewhere else entirely ... tell us about it.
Because as Harold Jarche advocates—and these are words I think about at least every other day—"Work is learning and learning is the work."
Now share it with us.
