Determined, Pt. 1: WORK!!!

Part 1 of Our “Determined” Series:

It’s time to take an honest look at ourselves.  I know I can look at myself extra hard in this matter.  It’s important that we work and it’s important that we work “well”.

In our efforts to succeed at life, we must have a sense of determination.  What better place to start than with ourselves?  We must ensure that we are first doing the “work” necessary to become successful.  What work is it that we should be doing?  Well, let’s start with what we’re doing now.  Solomon is stating in this scripture that the best time to work is NOW before we go to the grave.

Maybe you aren’t in your dream job.  It is possible that you aren’t on a job at all.  What are you doing?  Do you take care of your home?  Do you help people?  Do it “well”.  Work well at listening to people, being helpful, cleaning your home, taking care of yourself, reading your Bible, studying it and praying.  Start working in an excellent manner.

If you need help being better at the small things, that’s ok.  Ask for help, ask for true criticism.  Start small so that you can work well at everything that you do.  You were not born to be mediocre, don’t let anyone, including yourself, convince you of that!

Starting today, let’s be DETERMINED TO WORK WELL!

Ecclesiastes 9:10 New Living Translation (NLT)

10 Whatever you do, do well. For when you go to the grave,[a] there will be no work or planning or knowledge or wisdom.
