Whenever you do a thing, act as if all the world were watching. – Thomas Jefferson

I remember reciting: “I Promise to do my best, to be true to myself, my beliefs and Canada.  I will take action for a better world and respect the Brownie Law.”

76801651When I became an adult and joined the workforce, it became clear that it was easier to do my by best when I loved my job.

I didn’t do well in jobs I didn’t enjoy.

I worked in the housekeeping department at a hospital once.

I hated it.

I felt it was below me.

I barely squeaked by when management arranged surprise quality control inspections.

Yet even back then, my conscience nagged at me. I was fortunate enough to have a paying job, but I wasn’t really earning my pay.

Looking back, I would have fired me.

And so I imagined that God would be the next patient in the room I was cleaning.

It worked.

Subsequent inspections resulted in 100% ratings.

Even when you have a job you love, it’s likely there will be parts of your job you don’t like.


What motivates you to your best?
