Vote for the work that matters

I’ve an idea, when asking for vote (whatever), first encourage voting for other people’s work, not yours. And second, give credit to those who are excelling.

The work that really makes a difference and creates resonance is the work that comes up to the surface naturally by its brilliance, excellence isn’t an accident, nor depends on others opinion, no less than their vote – or approval. It’s something personal and it happens when someone decides to put all her energy, effort, passion and enthusiasm in trying to change those that impact with that project, idea, business or social initiative.

Don’t look at popularity, or recognition or re-affirmation as KPIs for the work that matters. Seek to do the hard task, commit for the big responsibility, walk the rocky road, seek the uncertain path, stand out in the middle of complexity. These are the moments when the important work occurs, that job, the one that leaves positive impact on people.

Another idea, invest the time you spend on promoting your work as the best in the world, in providing value and utility to your clients, readers or community, keep making something happen and breaking new ground. Be generous.
