Calling someone out for their brilliance or in recognition of their amazingness is not a frequent enough occurrence.
We should all strive to point out a huge effort, to give credit when and where credit is due. It’s a kind of giving; it’s free and it’s meaningful. We can learn so much from each other especially so when those pursuing greatness achieve their goals and are encouraged along their journey.
Amazingness, brilliance, effort, greatness; these are all relative concepts. It’s important to keep this in mind next time a call-out is potentially warranted. This is because the achievement need not be ground-breaking or innovative or revolutionary (although these would probably deserve a call out). All that’s really needed for a potential call-out is growth; a recognition that that person, as a result of their effort has either, grown or contributed to others’ growth.
Any form of meaningful growth and contribution in the right direction should be recognised and shared. Even though that step may be a small one, it is amazing nonetheless and should be called out as such.
