What Is Right With Your Hair?

This is the first piece in a recurring series where I ask readers to help identify things about me that they don’t like, but that they actually can get behind.

Sometimes when I’m frustrated, irritated or depressed, I’ll stop, take a minute or 10, and think about the way I feel about certain aspects of my life. Here, I share how I came to the conclusion that these things I don’t like are actually part of who I am, as much the part as my love for my family, my skills and my hair. I know I have to work on them. But I just can’t stop feeling like a total jerk. In fact, sometimes it feels as if those things are the only parts of myself that matter to me. They’re the only things I need to be happy. That’s not true.

I used to work a job that was difficult. I took on more responsibility than I could handle. I felt like I was getting nowhere. I wasn’t working on the things, the work, that I should have been working on to get better. I felt like I was getting nowhere. I wasn’t working on the things, the work, that mattered to my family, my skills and my hair. I felt like I was getting nowhere. Then one day, I discovered a job that I loved, and that enabled me to do just that. It enabled me to work on the things, the work, that mattered to my family, my skills and my hair. It enabled me to get closer to my loved ones – and with them for the first time in years – and be the best me that I can be. It was the best job I’ve ever had, the best way to connect to my family, the best way to do what I cared about. It gave me power to make a difference for so many people. So you can understand the impulse I had to share it with you.

It was easy for me to switch jobs, because what I saw was that my life was in a bad way, and I needed to get somewhere with my work. But I also saw a bright side, and a wonderful way to make a difference for so many people. I got to spend the day with my great team and my friends and my kids. I got to do what I cared about with my family. Now when I look back on my career, I can see why I enjoyed it. I could see what I did had a huge impact on our business, our organization and the world. I’d like to do more, do it well and do it again.

If you know me, you know I don’t waste time with people who need a favor. It’s what separates true professionals from day traders. But if you know me, you know that I am a real person who loves people. I think about them on a daily basis. I want to do anything I can to help them. That’s why I’m sharing this secret with you. If it helps, I hope one of you discovers an awesome new way to use it. If this helps, I hope one of you finds someone else who’s going through the same thing. If it changes someone’s life, then so be it.

There is a lot more that I want to share with you. But I have to stop before I do.

Stay tuned. I’ll let you in on something, too.
