Here’s a rewarding way to spend every minute, whether as an individual or an institution. Be on the lookout for the “spirit of you,” the spirit of who you really are, whenever and however it may appear. A joke, a song, a photograph, a pizza, the caress of a shirt on your skin, a gracious memo, the way someone rakes the lawn or walks their dog––every smidgen of existence is a potential expression of that distinct vibration of beauty that is you.
Maybe all there is to creating a healthy life or a healthy enterprise is identifying the spirit of our true self, and doing our best to make choices hand-in-hand with that spirit. And the more open we are to discovering (or tripping over) that spirit in the world around us, the easier it is to spot when we look within.

My heart smiles, “Hey, that’s me.”
