Set The Standards
by DW Green — August 21, 2019
Set the standards and use them. We go though our days responding and reacting, but it’s rare to really pause and ask: Is this thing I’m about to do consistent with what I believe? Or, better: Is this the kind of thing the person I would like to be should do?
The work of living is to set standards and then not compromise them. When you’re brushing your teeth, choosing your friends, losing your temper. Falling in love, instructing your child, or walking your dog—all of these are opportunities.
Not, I want to do good—that’s an excuse. But, I will do good in this particular instance, right now. Set a standard; hold fast to it. That’s all there is.
