Paul Sohn recently launched an incredible blog about leadership, geared toward millennials called QARA. He recently shared a powerful and personal post about what he wished he’d known earlier in life about business, leadership, and career choices.
At the end of the day, my father never taught me that who I choose to BE is way more important than what I choose to DO. Who am I being? Am I responsible? Am I loving? Am I inspiring? Am I honest? Am I humble? Am I honorable? This is the foundational question that needs to be addressed before we talk about what we want to do. Who do you want to be?
And he continues…
When it comes to choosing a career, I’ve been taught that there are only a few right answers. But we can get so caught up in the few options that we lose sight of the other 99 possibilities out there. What matters is your vision and who you desire to be. What are you committed to create?
If your vision is to create a better world for orphan children, there are 100 possibilities to do that. You can start a non-profit. You can become a philanthropist. You can start a business that gives back to the cause. You can raise awareness through your blog or social media platform. There are 100 possibilities. All that matter is if you have a clear vision.
It’s a great read, especially for young adults just starting out. So definitely share his site with all of your 20- and 30-something friends!
