There Are No Superior Callings
The Daily Law by Robert Greene, Pg. 28
Keep in mind that your contribution to the culture can come in many forms. You don’t have to become an entrepreneur or figure largely on the world’s stage. You can do just as well operating as one person in a group or organization, as long as you retain a strong point of view that is your own and use this to gently exert your influence. Your path can involve physical labor and craft- you take pride in the excellence of the work, leaving your particular stamp on the quality. It can be raising a family in the best way possible. In any event, you will want to go as far as you can in cultivating your uniqueness and the originality that goes with it. In a world full of people who seem largely interchangeable, you cannot be replaced. You are one of a kind. Your combination of skills and experience is not replicable. That represents true freedom and the ultimate power we humans can possess.
Daily Law: No calling is superior to another. What matters is that it can be tied to a personal need and inclination, and that your energy moves you toward improvement and continuous learning from experience.

Personal Reflection: Today’s entry reminds me of Creating Magic: 10 Common Sense Leadership Strategies by Lee Cockrell. Lee talks about equality of employees, how to treat these employees and other leadership strategies that I have found helpful throughout my career.
