The Greatest Thing We Can Do
We never truly have something, until we are perfectly willing to give it away.
This concept applies equally to ‘things’ as it does to the ‘things we do’, as it does to pro-bono work.
So often in life we see grandstanding and virtue signalling at the drop of a hat, or the very first opportunity to ask everyone to praise us for our ‘good works’.
Good works, are, just that.
If we are seeking the praises of the world for our good works – are we really good? Is the work we have done, good?
What is the motivation?
Those that are recognised most, are not recognised because they seek it, but because they do not. They seek only to do good work.
We can do so many things.
But do we do these things in order to promote, that we are ‘doing’ them?
I think this is the key distinction and subtle the distinction each of us must answer.
Those that do the best work, usually do it in silence, when nobody will ever know. They do this, because it is the right thing to do, at that moment.
