The Secret to Better Work

We absolutely love you readers.  You guys send us so many great things out there that go along with the message of the blog, which is such a thrill for us.  Today's video here is one of those treasures.  So many of you passed this along and we thank you all.  If you have not yet seen this, you really should take a look (the last few minutes are amazing).  It's about the secret for SUCCESS in our work!  I think you'll see why we love this message so much.  :) 

And, as I'm writing this, I'm thinking of my own work....Right now it includes writing a post each day (which I love), managing this overall endeavor and thinking of new initiatives & new ways to improve this blog (mostly, I just try to keep up with my brain which is many, many steps ahead), and lots & lots of emailing with readers or associates.  And it includes tackling a to do list of home, life, and service-related responsibilities (I help run the women's organization at church.)  Whew.  I'm trying to consider how this message could affect each aspect of what I do as there is always room for improvement.  And, of course I'm also thinking about you all and the different kinds of varying "work" that you all must face each day...  

What does your "work" look like?  It helps to get down and dirty and really start to consider how this new formula for success could be a game changer.

  5. I love this for so many reasons.... Many of his examples are things that line up with gospel teachings--gratitude, journaling, meditation (prayer/but also just meditation), kindness... I've always felt that there is so much practicality to the gospel and living a good life but from the outside it can seem like rules, rules, rules! Also, It seems like the modern plague of our time is unhappiness and I think our modern lives have contributed to this greatly--his rules counter a lot of what is ingrained in modern society, but a hundred years ago would have been more common in every day living (especially the journaling and meditation). I find this type of stuff fascinating. And I'm excited to try his rules.

    PS--I barely had time to watch that video and write my comment as I've recently started a little book called Les Miserable. Danny, thanks for the advice to take it slow. I'm still in the beginning and taking my time and not rushing has definitely helped me 'enjoy the journey' so to speak.
