Ay, sir.

I met a man who gets things done yesterday. He’s a man in search of good ideas and when he hears one, he starts setting the wheels in motion. Though we’d never met before, he treated me with utmost respect. Then after leaving him, I went on to the job I’ve had for almost 14 years, where I can feel the judgment and the push towards the door, where despite all that I’ve brought to the organization over the years, I do not feel seen or recognized, valued nor respected. Sometimes seeing these sorts of things next to one another can be revealing. And also heartbreaking.
But my focus and energy are turning towards those that say “Ay” that give me YES and AND.
