How to tell if you love what you do

Listen to the language you use.

What you love gives you perspective.

And the language you use reflects that perspective.

It works for people. And it works for business.

What you love can add passion and colour to everything you do.

And everything you say.

The wisdom of Blind Freddy

There is an old maxim about talking in public.

To be heard, stand up.

To be seen, speak up.

To be respected, shut up.

The first two lines seem to run counter to common sense – if you want to be heard, surely you’d speak up, if you want to be seen, just stand up.

But the wisdom behind the maxim reflects a simple observation.
