"Not only is a man not obliged to be grateful, gratitude is often a terrible burden that he gladly discards." ~ Robert Greene
Often we are unaware of the demands that will be placed upon us at any time. A typical day can result in a barrage of problems, demands for our attention, and time. The truth is we are not in control of our problems or of other people.
The best we can do is to be ready.
Tell us where we are going.
Keep your mind primed and always ready to take action.
Express gratitude with others.
Listen to some music.
And most of all trust God.
As we journey through this experiment called the "new economy" or "the age of speed" distractions and problems are guaranteed. Rather than reacting, use your mind, tools, and trusted relationships to invent new possible paths.
