What do I get paid to do?

Someone once asked me, "What do you get paid to do?"

They didn't want to know my job title or what my company does. They didn't want to know who I worked with or how I spent my time.

They weren't interested in an obvious surface-level answer. They were asking for the deeper, less obvious answer.

I thought about it for a moment and replied, "I get paid to do four things: (1) Reveal, (2) Clarify, (3) Enhance, and (4) Accelerate."

I reveal things people don't know, clarify where people have confusion or uncertainty, enhance what people already understand and do, and accelerate what people want to improve.

Hopefully, you've experienced at least one of these since subscribing to Daily Discipline. The truth is, I don't do it to get paid. I do it because I care, and it brings me joy.

Answer the call. Do the work.
