Is your work worth the second mark?

There is the regular every day work. The constant flow of action points. The things that just need to be done.

Sometimes the work is even worth a mark. Most likely it’s a thing that we accomplish for the benefit of someone else.

Usually the work is good if it helps somebody. If it makes a connection in a way that someone might even be willing to change their action based on your results.

Once your work reaches a level beyond the mere influence on actions of others, it becomes something more. Your work grows into potential to change thinking, beliefs or emotional state of those you are here to serve.

When it happens, the work becomes a thing worth making a mark about the second time. It becomes remarkable.

Remarkable is something to make a mark about… again.

At that moment you start earning something more. The respect of your community. To be re-seen for the impact you have introduced.

And the question usually is not about inventing something new. It isn’t about what you should start doing to be remarkable. It is a more simple one. It is how.

How could you do the work you’re already doing, to be worth the second mark?
