Words: “Do Worthwhile Work”

Its human nature to want ‘what we do’ to be valued and to want to be valued for what we do …

But, since everything we do actually builds platforms for future actions by ourselves and others, we can’t settle for “just do it.”  It has to matter whether we actually do something worthy of ourselves and others.
In turn, the choices we make every day over what we do and how we do it will have greater impact on our future actions than anyone else’s encouraging or discouraging words.

…[instead of] believing that one day you’ll do worthwhile work …

do worthwhile work, look at it,

then believe that you can do it again.

Step by step, small to large, easy to difficult. Do work you can believe in.
