your mind is not the wisest part of you

Your mind is not the wisest part of you

Fearless expression of yourself, your ambitions

Often we have secret longings, dreams, ambitions about how or what we would like to contribute at work. But then we leave those longings at the doorstep of the office, because we fear this side of us will not be appreciated. Or maybe you tell yourself this is not part of my job description, or […]
