We often measure success by our ability to accomplish something.
We'd do better to measure success based on serving someone.
Doing we can, with what we have, where we are.
That is an outcome worth looking at.
Honoring someone else's needs above our individual wants.
The opportunity we've been given to serve one another will always be greater than obsessing over the wins and losses trying to trump one another.
We can come up with all sorts of excuses why we "aren't able to".
And we'll end up missing out on the greatest opportunity of all...
To serve one another.
If the process doesn't excite you,
the destination likely won't be able to fulfill you.
Because the destination often ends up looking very different than we think it will.
If you aren't all-in on the process,
you'll bail even faster once you realize what the end looks like.
So whatever it is you are working on, make sure the work wakes you up everyday. Make sure the work puts a smile on your face. Make sure the first set-back isn't an attractive opportunity to quit.
If the work you are doing matters,
every difficulty you encounter becomes a welcome challenge.
If you do?
Something tells me you are going to love the destination when you get there...
