Why You Shouldn’t Be The Hero

Being a hero is sexy. 

Everyone grows up wanting to wear a mask and have super powers. 

The trouble is that while the idea of super-hero powers is attractive, it’s not functional. 

Unless you have found a glowing vat of toxic waste and survive contact, you can probably kiss this dream goodbye. 

In fact, you can also kiss other types of heroism goodbye. 

Like:

  • Working 100 hour weeks.
  • Never taking breaks.
  • Missing your kids’ baseball games.

The list goes on. 

You don’t have to suffer to be productive or successful. 

I’m going to say that one more time to help it sink in. 

You don’t have to suffer to be productive or successful. 

If your work requires heroism to get the job done, your process is broken. 

There are plenty of people who are more successful and productive than you and who are also happy.
