This one: “To dare is to lose one’s footing momentarily. Not to dare is to lose oneself.”

Kierkegaard was a Danish philosopher, theologian, poet, social critic and religious author who is widely considered to be the first existentialist philosopher. (Thank you, Wikipedia.)
He was also the purveyor of other epically quotable wisdom gems.
Including this one: “God has given each of us our ‘marching orders.’ Our purpose here on Earth is to find those orders and carry them out. Those orders acknowledge our special gifts.”
That’s Today’s +1.
God has given each of us our marching orders.
What are YOURS?
Let’s know that our purpose here on Earth (and why we do all we do together Optimizing!) is to find those orders and carry them out.
So… What are your special gifts? How are you/will you give them to the world?
One more time: What are your marching orders?
Let’s find them and follow them.
