Sacrifice vs Win-Win

As parents
can sacrifice themselves
in hopes to provide
a better home for their children,
a Founder
can sacrifice themselves
in hopes to provide
a better workplace for their employees.

While seemingly virtuous
sacrifice
can also be
a breeding ground
for resentment.

There are situations
when we have no choice
but to sacrifice,
but in many cases
there are ways
to achieve win-win
with children
or employees
by sharing the burden
with them.

The challenge
lies in our willingness
to be vulnerably honest
enough
to be able to ask
for their support.
