Together, we can do great things…

“You can do what I cannot do. I can do what you cannot do. Together, we can do great things.”

Mother Teresa

It take great humility and self-awareness to understand that you can’t be good at everything. Great teams are built around people with different and complimentary gifts. If everyone on the team is the same, then the team is built with inherent weakness. You need the strengths of others to accomplish the mission.

What are the gifts that you bring to the table to best serve others? What gifts do you need others to possess in order to accomplish great things?

When to start? TODAY!

“Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today.  Let us begin.”

Mother Teresa

How often do we spend our lives living in the past by lamenting what didn’t happen or trying to hold on to our previous accomplishments? Conversely, how much time do we spend living and thinking about the future and what we want or desire? I will admit that I am very guilty of the latter scenario, spending a lot of time and energy on what I think or want to happen. It is a constant battle to bring focus to what I need to do RIGHT NOW and put that same energy to use today.

Our supply of energy and time is finite. How we choose to invest it TODAY will create the future we want but only if we invest wisely. You have to start now. What is the very simple, finite, and clear thing you can start today that would impact the lives of others or yourself? Got it? Do it…
