Give vs Lend


We say we have given.
Be it our care, time, or money, …

Yet, we sometimes hold on to the _memory_ of having given.

Then perhaps we have lent, not given.

Lending creates expectations.
Expectations create tension.
The bigger the amount lent, the more tension it creates.

To give is to let go.
To let go is not easy.

Yet, letting go creates space in our mind.
Perhaps the most scarce resource we have as leaders.
Space in our mind.
Even more scarce than time.

Let us reclaim our space of mind.
