W is for Work
Thursday is the day I focus on my work.
Do not get stuck in a cycle of just going through the motions. Take a look at what you do for work and make improvements.
Make a list of what you need to do in order to finish the week strong.
1. Are their people that you need to communicate to. Call back. Email?
2. Clean your work space.
3. Renew your commitment to doing things with excellence.
4. Prepare for next week.
In the book Lead The Field (I have read it 4 times.) Earl Nightingale teaches about the power of making a list and making sure you do the important things.
I often work late on Thursday to get things done. It feels good to wake up on Friday and know that all those loose ends are wrapped up.
Take pride in your work. Find ways to serve people better and solve more problems.
If you are not happy with your job, look for a way to serve God in the things you do.
Colossians 3:23 Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people.
I've had plenty of jobs I didn't like. I imagine you have too. Serving God while I mop a floor that no one is going to thank me for is a wonderful way to look at a task.
I am not looking for people to appreciate me or even pay me. I do what is needed and what is right.
During these times I pray, think about a story in the Bible, listen to a sermon, or crank up some good worship music.
When I am done with a task I feel good. There is a deep satisfaction that comes from a job well done and complete.
Proverbs 11:25 The lazy will come to ruin, for their hands refuse to work
I have watched people over the years and the happiest are those that work and do it with a good attitude.
Work Smarter, Work Harder.
Love, Pastor Max
