Doers Getting More Done


The advertisement received yesterday in the mail from Home Depot read, “How doers get more done.”

Kind of ironic as this blog is about two true stories on the topic of people who “do.”

Recently a friend prepared for a presentation.

A text in support of her, sent before her presentation, read, “It will be perfect as it is; whatever it is, you’ve done the work.” It was accompanied by a single candle emoji.

The text’s “text” was true for her.

She had done the work on the subject on which she was speaking. Thus, she could talk from experience and said she felt encouraged by having done the work.

As it turns out, her presentation rang true for her audience because they could tell she met the challenges of doing the work they studied together.
                                                                                                                                                                                                                         And, yes, her presentation was successful. She said it was meaningful to her and her audience felt uplifted.
                                                                                                                                                                                                                        Another friend received poor lab results and happy news that her granddaughter was pregnant.
                                                                                                                                                                                                                           The intersection of these two events ignited the desire and commitment to lose the thirty-five pounds she’s been meaning to lose.
Moment by moment she is consciously making the right choices that aid her in getting healthy and slim to be there for her great grand baby.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                          She is doing the necessary work.

Just the other day, bubbling with excitement and with renewed intent, she told her medical professional – she had “lost the bloat!” 😊 I am confident she will follow the program and achieve her goal weight.

Keeping vigil is important for achievement on all levels of living.

Interestingly, in the first scenario, as previously noted, my friend’s text message was accompanied by a candle emoji.

People light candles to keep vigil with intent and prayer as they wait in devotion and hold high the vision of what they desire. This is important so we don’t lose the motivation to keep taking the steps we need to take.

In times of choosing whether to make that commitment and offer the sacrifices necessary to reach what we desire, remember the rewards that come from our hard work and the joy in doing our best work.

 “He becometh poor that dealeth with a slack hand: but the hand of the diligent maketh rich.”—Proverbs 10:4, KJV.
