“Have the moral courage to live in the gray…. Live the questions so that, one day, you will live yourself into the answer.” — Jacqueline Novogratz — (Founder and CEO Acumen)
Learn to balance your purpose and what success looks like in the end, appreciating the often harsh reality of the challenges you’ll overcome while still imagining and eventually attaining the level of difference you choose to make.
There aren’t easy solutions to complicated problems. Living in the balance of the gray area between an ultra clear purpose, while experiencing the conditions as a realist, allows us to continually drive forward. Also from Novogratz, “do what is right, not what is easy.”
Living and balancing yourself through these is the way.
