Tough Jobs

“When we accept the tough jobs as a challenge to our ability and wade into them with joy and enthusiasm, miracles can happen!”

~ From the Salesman’s Book of Wisdom, by Criswell Freeman ~

What tough jobs plaque you? When I face a tough job my tendency is NOT to “wade into them with joy”…nope I want to either put off the tough stuff, delegate it out to some poor soul or run the other direction. So when I read this quote I had to rethink my approach. I’ve had seasons when I get to my dreaded list first. After tackling a rough task I feet accomplished and competent. When I avoid, I feel defeated and incapable. So why do I put off the tough stuff? Human nature I guess. This quote has reminded me to take on some hard stuff, first thing then I will be stronger for the rest of the day.

Or watch an episode of “The World’s Dirtiest Jobs” then you’ll realize you don’t really have any tough jobs.

Moving forward,
