One of the blogs I read daily is Stephen St. Amant’s “Savenwood.” Very often, Stephen’s words happen to be exactly what I need to hear!
I asked Stephen if I could share his recent post, as it encapsulates so much of what I believe about showing up with intention.
You’re not aware of the personal setbacks my doctor overcame this week.
And neither am I.
Because she’s a professional.

Share your personal struggles with a close friend. Maybe even a trusted colleague.
But in your profession — for the people you serve — be one hundred percent. Make things work magically. Seamlessly.
I’m not suggesting that we deny our own humanity. Or that we bottle things up and ignore personal challenges. Just that we choose the right time and the right venue to share.
Your surgeon. Your pilot. Your legal counsel. They all had perfect weekends, they’re well-rested, and they’re ready to work (from your perspective). Because they’re professionals.
We can be, too.
Thanks, Stephen! Check out more of his writing and work at https://www.savenwood.com/blog/ .
