And we circle back to Monday. What are you prepared to do this week to be great? 95% of the world will live an average week and therefore produce average results. What about you? Simple changes in self-discipline will change the course of your entire week. I wanted to take a second and go over something that I learned this morning during my studies. As all of you know, I am a member of the LDS church. I watched a talk this morning that was given by one of the churches leaders. He was speaking on balance of life. This is something that I know several of you on this thread work very hard to have. You try and balance good health, financial responsibilities, church callings and obligations, quality time with your wife and kids, and much, much more.
So how do we do it? How the hell do we balance all the responsibilities that have been placed on our shoulders? We do our best. That is what we do. This same church leader said that, “As much as you possibly can, when you are home, be home. When you are at work, don’t be at home. When you are at church, don’t be at work or home. Give everything you have to focus on where you are NOW!“ Life is so freaking crazy. More often than not, we run around with our heads cut off just trying to “make it through life”. Make sure that instead of just making it through, you are intentionally living. Make sure there is purpose to the madness.
Truth is, you are not going to be able to balance everything perfectly. Sometimes you are going to feel like a bad parent. Sometimes you are going to feel like a bad employee. Sometimes you are going to feel like a bad member of your church. With great blessings comes great responsibilities, and if you think you are going to cruise through life being perfect at them, you will be let down your entire life. BE THE BEST YOU CAN BE! And do your very best to live in the moment. Do your very best to focus on what stands before you. What I learned today is that there really is no possible way to be perfect. But the beauty of life is that we DON’T have to be perfect to be progressing.
Life is good, Cram
