The words that helped me to have a better relationship with my work and with myself.

When you feel low & when you feel you’re undervalued

Whatever the work is, do it well — not for the boss — but for yourself.

You make the job; it doesn’t make you.

You are not the work you do; you are the person you are.

Words stolen from Tony Robbins.

Every time I revisit these highlights in Readwise, it will resonate with me for at least a week.

We often confuse our role in work with ourselves.

The respect and value you get from your peers is often not for you. Either it is for the role you play or the work you can do for them.

As a person. As a role.

Two different things. NOT the two sides of the same coin.

Your work doesn’t define you.

But almost all the time it contributes more than anything for others to evaluate you — and judge you.

You have a definition of yourself in your mind. But no one cares about it.

You want them to see it.

You want them to recognize it.
