I realize that I read a lot of books all at the same time. Currently, I think I have at least 4 going. I never really finish them either, but they stay on my night stand as good reminders and inspiration. Last night, I picked up where I left off with Yes Please by Amy Poehler. I think the universe is always trying to tell us stuff and we just need to listen. That was definitely the case as I was reading.
In the book, Amy (yes, we are on a first name basis because I want to be besties) really made think about this idea – What is my currency?
Currency [ cur’ren’cy] is defined as
The idea of currency is about exchanges and the tools we use to shape, track and manage these exchanges. It’s so much more than transfer for goods or services — it includes flows of attention, trust, knowledge, information, participation, time, energy, etc.
I started to brainstorm – What are my unique talents? What do I bring to the table? How can I use my talents and ideas to be widely accepted currency?
That moment of acceptance comes when we are confident in our contribution. And remember: someone is depending on you to be exactly who you are.
