Building character and making progress (by choice)


You’re faced with your own character and humanity when:

  1. your boss isn’t watching
  2. your kids are asleep
  3. there are no cops on the road
  4. no one is watching

I’m particularly interested in the idea of personal growth in a vacuum.

If no one is watching my work, will I do my best?

Do I maximize my productivity when I’m not needed in a meeting at 3pm?

Would I continue writing on this blog if no one read it?

Would I be committed to self-improvement if all signs pointed to my current state being “good enough?”
