Our best work isn’t due to a heroic all nighter or visionary decision, but to consistently showing up and doing the work.
Fifty four weeks ago I started writing a weekly letter and publishing it online, with the goal of sharing my journey as an Christian entrepreneur and encouraging others.
Writing 300 words a week doesn’t seem like a daunting task, but I have had many weeks where it was hard to find the time – from health to travel – there was often a reason to not get it done. It’s amazing how many times I would type up my letter on Sunday night (this being no exception), only doing so because I have committed to show up.
That’s the thing, we have good intentions of doing the work, but something always comes up – an unplanned meeting or a client emergency – and we are tempted to bump the important for the urgent. But when we commit to something, especially publicly, we make it happen. And when this becomes a habit, we can make real progress, even if it seems small at the time.
As I look back, I’m encouraged by these letters, and am driven to to continue writing, with the hope that they will encourage even one person each week from the blessings I have received. May you commit to the work you need to do, being faithful day in and day out, knowing this is how you will achieve the mission you are called to.
So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up.
