There was a time when most of my daily activity was designed to impress someone else.
For years (decades?), I chased bigger and better goals assuming every achievement made me more “amazing” in the eyes of my clients, peers, family, etc.
Looking back, guess what is now crystal clear?
No one cared all that much.
Your friends, peers, clients, etc. aren’t updating their “Impressive People I Know” spreadsheet every time you announce a new recognition on LinkedIn.
Keep this in mind as you start laying out your “big” goals for 2023.
