small jobs

Monday, February 23, 2009

Do you ever feel that you will never advance in your life or career and get that opportunity to do something BIG? Don't doubt the importance and impact on doing the smaller jobs in life! The key to this quote is being consistent--despite the level (or lack of) glamour or grandeur of your work. If you must scrub toilets, make them the shiniest, cleanest darn toilets on the block! In all things do the best you can, whether someone is looking or not. If you want to succeed in life, it is important that you have a strong foundation of consistent, hard work. Don't dodge the smaller tasks in an effort to hold out for the glamorous, important jobs. Put value in the small things and you'll reap a huge reward when you're put to the test!

    Not only a good lesson there, but very valuable information. In this day and age, the way the economy is, you have to do what you can to survive. I wished a lot of kids could read this. I know kids that have been out of school now for 2 years that are too good to work in McDonalds flipping burgers. They want jobs that "Pay more", but would rather sit home making NOTHING! It doesn't make since. This day in time, people think they should make 6 digits with no education or very little at that.

    AMEN!!

I'm always saying that you can't look at things as tasks, but opportunities!

You never know who you are going to run into or meet along the way. And you don't know who you are going to impress, or when, so you always have to do your best!

smile

Friday, February 20, 2009

Have you ever contemplated how much a smile can change a person's day? Both the person who smiles and the one who sees it are positively impacted by such a small act. This seemingly tiny reflex can perk up a bad attitude, make you seem more warm and inviting, and often pass some happiness on to others. So the next time your alarm goes off for your 5 a.m. run or your dog barks in the middle of the night, smile instead of grumbling. You'd be surprised how a positive face can in turn become a positive and motivational attitude!

What we can learn about patience from a diamond

Trying (but failing) to see your goals realized can be frustrating. Margaret Thatcher once said "You may have to fight a battle more than once to win it," and she was absolutely right. You've got to believe that you will succeed! Never admit defeat as long as time and effort remain. Our greatest asset is patience; our greatest weakness is throwing in the towel. Banish discouragement and feelings of impossibility by working hard, doing more, and not giving in! A diamond was only made beautiful after millions of years as a lump of coal.
