Daily Work Goal #4 For 2012

I heard a quote this week that I really appreciated. "Remember, Smoke Isn't Necessarily Fire." During the work week we all experience a little smoke. For example, a disagreement with a co worker could be considered smoke. Our boss letting us know we need to improve our performance, and it rubs us the wrong way could be considered smoke. We accidentally oversleep and arrive at work late could be considered smoke. Some of the gossip that goes on during the work day, and you know "that" person is running their mouth, could be considered smoke. And it's ok, in my opinion, for us to experience some smoke in the workplace. Now don't twist my words and tell someone that you read a blog and the author said it was ok to smoke in the workplace. Ha Ha.. The problem arrives when we take the smoke that comes during a normal work week and turn it into fire. Fire kills, destroys, and spreads quickly. It is intimidating and even scary at times. If it is not managed well, it gets out of control, and people can get hurt. Make it a goal this year to take the smoke during the work week and recognize it's only smoke. Don't take something small, ignite it, and allow it to burn those around you. Let the small things remain small, and when you experience a true fire, find a noble way to put it out.

Key Verse: 1 Thessalonians 4:11 "Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business and to work with your hands, just as we told you.."
