Pearl S. Buck who was an author –said, “The secret of joy in work is contained in one word – excellence. To know how to do something well is to enjoy it.”


How true is that? When you learn to do anything it’s somewhat arduous – an instrument, driving a vehicle, the first time you cook something – and then as you get better and better – it becomes more and more enjoyable –


Are you putting in the time to become excellent at those things you want most?


Could it be that you’re becoming excellent at things you don’t like or want?


How can you realign yourself today so that you are putting your time and focus on those things that will give you the life you want?


Friday Funny:


A young man who had just become a waiter had his first customer, which turned out to be a BIG BURLY truck driver.


The young man walked up to the table where the truck driver was sitting and asked; “Can I take your order sir?”


The truck driver replied, “Sure kid I want three flat tires and two headlights.”


The young man was very puzzled and said, “I beg your pardon?”


The truck driver said again, “Look kid; I want three flat tires and two headlights.”


The young waiter was still puzzled, but replied; “Yes sir”.


The young man then took the request to his boss who was the head cook. He told him about the truck driver’s order, and that he wanted three flat tires and two headlights, “I think he’s in the wrong place.”


The head cook said, “I know what he wants, he wants three flap jacks and two eggs sunny side up; the truck driver is just trying to be smart, I know him.”


The cook said to the waiter “Here, take this bowl of beans, give it to him and say this”.


So the young waiter took the beans out to the truck driver and placed them on the table.


The truck driver said, “Listen kid, I didn’t order this; I said I wanted three flat tires and two headlights.”


The waiter replied, “Well sir, the head cook said while you wait for your parts, you can gas up!”
