Standards developed by society allow people to live together harmoniously. But socially reinforced metrics evaluate ability and reward excellence in very narrow ways. You’ll be at the mercy of these external measurements until you recognize your freedom to self-evaluate. Separate your performance from your essence. Your essence is who you are. Your performance is how you measure up to society’s idea of value.¬†You don’t need to perform according to an external barometer to prove your worth. Go ahead and play the game. Just make sure you don’t…

Believe the hype.
