“I learned from my teachers, but became through my music” says Macklemore in his song The Town.  On my morning run, that lyric got me thinking.

When are we learning?  From mentors, new situations and challenges.  New tasks, new ways of being.  Pretty much we’re learning all the time.

But, what are the things that help us become.  Where we find who we are in all the learning.  We secure our point of view and engage in something in a way that both contains effort and ease.  These are the things and moments I LOVE about work. Recognizing the work that helps me become myself.  And, watching it happen for othe people is nearly as good as doing it.

Today, look for the things that help you become.
