“Being You” as a job description

As a Met fan I received a brief human interest story in my RSS reader about former Met great Rusty Staub. The gist of the story was about some of the younger players being cut and that Rusty only experienced that once in his career as a 17-year old with the then Houston Colt 45s.

There was, however, this great line, “He [Staub] still works for the Mets, with his job description ‘Being Rusty Staub.’ No one else handles that assignment quite so well.”

I really think we should all subscribe to a similar job description. It sets a bar for us to be self-differentiated and confident in our own skin.

I might just order some business cards with “Being Ed Kless” as my title.
