Forget Labels, Focus on Contribution

Write down your labels: height, weight, body size, title, income, authority, and personality type. Fold the piece of paper in half. Fold it again. Do it again. Tape the piece of paper to a helium balloon. Go outside and let the balloon fly away.

Now that you’ve gotten your labels out of the way, write down one thing you can do today to make a positive difference in your organization. Then do that one thing today. Tomorrow repeat this process. Over time you will matter greatly, and your organization will improve.
