So I’ve written before about the value in starting your own business … and I still wholeheartedly stand by that.
However I recently read an interview with the actor Michael Keaton, that made me re-think a bit about what ‘starting your own business’ really means.
I love how he connects choosing a role with running his business.
It’s so obvious, but I never thought of it that way before.
But this is exactly how everyone should look at what they do … even if you are an employee of someone else.
What are you choosing to do?
What are you choosing to accept?
What are the standards you will work to and will expect from others?
Sure, some of these things are easier to control when you literally run ‘your own business’ … but if we acknowledge that our careers are ultimately in our own hands, then looking at what we do through the lens of it being ‘our own business’, may make us sharper on what we do and what we are willing to do. Or – as is sometimes even more important – what we won’t.
