“If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted or Beethoven composed music or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, ‘Here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well." – Martin Luther King, Jr.
In vain you rise early and stay up late, toiling for food to eat (proverb) -- We over worry about clothes, tangible things, how we will pay the bills, or find food to eat and these are moments you will never get back. What could you do with 5 more hours, two hours, or even ten minutes a day? Ten minutes a day is over an hour more a week. So tell me what YOU can accomplish with this time. Did you make that list of goals I asked you for on Saturday? Spend TEN minutes a day devoted only to tasks that will accomplish those goals.
A friend of mine, Seth Mattison a generational public speaker, asked via Facebook yesterday: what is keeping us busy or what is on your mind right now? Without giving it much though I responded with a list of tasks I normally run through, then after he commented that wasn't what he meant I responded with: Work, finding new clients, moving somewhere warm (and preferably near a beach), and being single. None of these things mean I am not content with what I have, but I'm not willing to become stagnant when I think somewhere out there is something that will make me happier. Seth, in his infinite wisdom, responded that I'm already a work-o-holic (as many of you constantly tell me I need to get a life), I don't need to worry about clients because they seem to find me, moving is easy if that is what I really want, and finding the one will happen when I least expect it. I couldn't put it better myself, I believe all of those things whole-heartedly. What is on YOUR mind or in your heart? I want to know. Tell me in the comments, or better yet in your very own blog post and link to this one and then tell me about it via comments or twitter.
Whatever your hands find to do, do it with all your might, for in the grave, where you are going, there is neither working nor planning nor knowledge nor wisdom. There are different kinds of working, but the same God works all of them in all men. So, whatever you do, work at it with all you heart, as working for the Lord, not for men. --The Bible
All hard work brings profit, but mere talk leads only to poverty. (Proverbs)
