|Here Comes The Flood|
When the night shows
The above is a song by Peter Gabriel. It was based on a dream he had where people were exposed to their thoughts being laid bare for all to see (interpret). In other words, everyone would know if you were authentic or not.
Sounds like a cure for all the actors we have in corporate America. Hey, these folks might appreciate the liberation of a flood. The liberation from portraying someone or something they are not.
If you plan on building something (life, work, family, etc.), then I would suggest you get the habit of making people know where you stand...win or lose. Check-out Seth Godin's post "Authentic." It's a great story of someone who inspired by being who he really was.
