Episode #75: Taking Charge > Taking Control
The “what” is easy. Craftwork is a specialty coffee shop and vibrant membership-based workspace with locations in Fort Worth (Foundry, Camp Bowie, Magnolia) and Austin (Domain). We serve craft coffee and are a connected coworking space. But you knew that already. Our “why” is our heart – we desire to create spaces and places where our members and customers experience connection and community.
We hope this finds you very well.
There is a huge difference between trying to control everything in our life and taking charge of everything in our life. We hope this advocate encourages us to avoid “taking control” and embrace “taking charge”.
A “taking control” mindset says we can control external circumstances and how people respond or act towards us. It is a mindset that says we can keep bad things from happening to us. Taking control is rooted in fear and leads us down a path of worry, anger, and resentment. In contrast, a “taking charge” mindset says we can’t control external circumstances, but we are responsible for how we respond. Taking charge is rooted in humility and looks like kindness, resilience, and determination. Taking charge leads us down a path of ownership and gratitude. We can’t control external circumstances and we certainly can’t control others. We can, however, take charge of how we respond. Let’s let go of the myth of control and take charge this week!
