📅 Thought for today:
‘A creative man is motivated by the desire to achieve, not by the desire to beat others.’
— Ayn Rand

Why do we celebrate greed, wealth, and winning?
When we know that there are more valuable human qualities than this and that in our own interests, we should be taking better care of each other?
I’m not going down the “seven deadly sins” route here, nor preaching.
Just musing. I think age gives you the luxury of the time and experience to muse.
Today is a writing day, I’ve been distracted with developing and delivering a lot of training recently, alongside being trained, and working one-on-one with clients.
A few weeks ago I decided to carve this day out and keep it free to re-engage with my writing for a whole day.
My motivation is solely to enjoy the experience and create some written work that might end up being published, and that someone might value. For achievement is not in the creation but in the value to someone else.
