In our last +1, we took a quick trip to Michelangelo’s studio and saw the Optimus You sitting there in the uncarved marble. Then we did a little chiseling at some behaviors that might be getting in the way.
Today’s +1 is another super-quick one.
Pop quiz: You know what moment Michelangelo decided to capture when he carved David?
Hint: It wasn’t his moment of celebration right after he “officially” became a hero by defeating Goliath.
It was hismoment of DECISION.
It was the moment he DECIDED to step up and do his best to serve profoundly and, ultimately, heroically.
That (and I have goosebumps as I type this) was what Michelangelo (rightly) considered the most heroic moment of David’s life—the moment he DECIDED to step up and strive to be a hero.
We get to make those micro-decisions all day every day.
