Louder than words

The introduction to Todd Henry’s book Louder Than Words is insightful and worth offering at the start of this new week.

“Your work tells tales. It speaks about you, your values, your hopes, your ambitions, and ultimately what you deem worthy of your energy and attention. It reveals, intentionally or not, what you really think about the world around you. Ultimately, your body of work – which is any place you create value, whether through your job, your relationships, or any other way you spend your time and energy – is a standing testament to your existence on this speck of rock orbiting the sun.

“Here’s a question worth pondering: While your work speaks about you, does it really speak for you? Does it represent you well? Does it reflect the authentic you?”

Good questions to ponder, knowing too that ‘you’ is not just singular…
