A Matter of Perspective
Once you say something or draw attention to it, it never seems to fail but you will notice it ALL of the time!
Last week I wrote about things being “good enough.” This past week, I have heard and seen examples of things being done just “good enough.”
It really made me start to think, we really are a throw-away, nothing really matters kind of society. It doesn’t matter if we take care to do our best...because it is just going to be consumed or thrown away anyway.
When did this happen? When did we become such a society where things don’t matter, so who cares how we do it?
But you know what? As I implied last week, each of us can make a difference if we start doing our best even if no one else does.
With hope, if enough people start doing their best, it will catch on.
I don’t want to say that everyone is like that. I know there are a lot of people out there who work hard and do give their all to everything they do. I would just like it if more of us would adopt that mindset.
Let us stop creating for disposal and start creating for longevity. Start being positive about our work—not necessarily prideful, but positive.
If your job is scraping manure into a pit, be the best manure pit scraper you can be.
If your job is making a fast food burger, make that burger look like it does in the advertisements!
In short, just do your best without complaint, and let’s make this world a better place to live!
