Monday Mottoes – #31

act-as-if-what-you-do-makes-a-difference-it-doesLife is made up of a variety of steps.  Not always a linear progression, either.  Sometimes it’s one step forward, and two steps backward; other times, it’s a series of sidesteps.

Life calls for fancy footwork, especially when you’re walking on eggshells in a delicate situation, or you need to climb up the corporate ladder.  It could be that your competition wants to leap-frog over the day-to-day, day-in, day-out steps that are required for success.  Yet, often, that’s where the victory is found, in putting one foot in front of the other.

Which brings us to today’s motto:  “Act as if everything you do makes a difference. It does.” ~William Jameswork-quotes

Show up early and stay late.  Really listen to your mate and stop arguing.  Make the presentation over-the-top.  Give the client more than they’re asking.  Put everything you’ve got into that school paper.  Imagine your child’s disappointment and help him over it.  Take time for prayer.

Hands-in-heartEvery. step. matters.  It does.

You don’t need to write your mate a love note, or do a kind act for a friend, or help someone in need, yet it makes a difference.  On the inside and the outside.  You are building a life and you are making a difference today.

Happy Monday, everyone!
