Strive for excellence.
In three days’ time, two friends of mine have called. They don’t know each other. They’re not even in the same discipline or state. But BOTH of them have suddenly glimpsed opportunities, out of the clear blue, that might develop into the jobs of their dreams. They weren’t out hunting. They were just doing what they love, and doing it with excellence. They have suddenly stumbled onto doors that they’ve never seen before, and they’re knocking hard on those doors. The doors may open. No telling yet what’s going to happen. But things can change in an instant, when God’s good and ready to take you to the next level.
My prayers and best wishes go out to my two friends, who I have promised to keep anonymous. If they get the chance to work in the jobs that their hearts’ desire, they will really be something to see. Whatever the outcome, I admire them both for the examples they set.
