The Worker

The worker who is careless with their tasks and idle with their time is poor and brings poverty to their people,
While another worker’s diligence, resourcefulness, and efficiency makes himself and others rich.

This is even more true of their hearts and lives than their material wealth.

Be purposeful and drive forward with an intent to do great work — because diligence itself is an even greater reward than the honor, title, or compensation it might gain you.

Be attentive to opportunities, to lessons learned, and to solutions — because resourcefulness is an even greater reward than the honor, title, or compensation it might gain you.

Be mindful of your time and how your efforts might be maximized through sorting, prioritization, automation and delegation– because efficiency is an even greater reward than the honor, title, or compensation it might gain you.

Instead of seeking honor, title, compensation, or even a good reputation from others, focus on building for yourself a life of character — and those lesser things will follow.

Poor is he who works with a negligent and idle hand, But the hand of the diligent makes him rich.
