The ONE THING for today

When it’s okay to do something badly

One of the greatest lessons I have ever learned came from a statement by Os Guinness in his book, The Call.

Guiness states, “If a thing is worth doing, it is worth doing badly.”

Now don’t confuse doing something badly with doing something sloppily, or half-heartedly. That is not the point.

The point is, if something needs to be done and the best person to do it is not available or willing, you have a choice.

You can whine and complain and be a victim…

Or you can step up and do your best at doing what must be done.

The ONE THING for today: Not being qualified is never an excuse for the person who cares.
