I've been thinking a lot lately about how egos get in the way of getting good work done. Sometimes, it's trying to hold onto to something that you should let go of, like a definition of yourself. While I was contemplating this I saw a bumper sticker:
"Nobody Cares if You Tele."
In this case, Tele means telemark skiing. As a long time tele-skier myself, I've been a victim of the self-righteousness that the sport breeds with sayings like "Free your Heels and Free your Mind."
The bumper sticker made me laugh at myself. Maybe that's the best way to get beyond your ego.
It's good to remind myself that nobody cares that I work at CP+B. It's about all about the work.
