     “I can’t for the life of me understand what is so great about this Indianapolis 500 stuff,” said one housewife to another. “They make a big hero out of the driver who is the first one to travel 500 miles by driving continuously in circles.” 

  • Learning does not have to be tough

     It’s one thing to resist getting the hang of a smart phone. It’s quite another to allow fear of learning, or more precisely fear that you can’t learn, to get in the way of career success. 

  • Practice kindness

    The practice of kindness encompasses a range of small acts and habits that we know as old-fashioned good manners – saying “please” and “thank you,” waiting your turn, being on time, lending a helping hand, or cheering someone up with a smile.

    This practice also means being generous with your presence, your time and your money. Give freely without expecting anything in return. Just do it. Kindness is not a quid pro quo endeavor.

    We read in Psalm 119:8, “I will observe your statutes.” I like the Psalmist’s clear communication of what he “will” do. It is forceful and committed. “I will observe God’s statutes.” Notice he does not write, “I will try to observe God’s statutes.” “Try” is one of those words that we should tune our ear to so that when we use it, we question our commitment.
