As a consequence, of His death and resurrection on the third day, we have an opportunity to be reconciled to God.

What extraordinary, boundless love.

I hope that you fulfill the requirements of your job description.

Delivering projects, meeting deadlines, hitting KPI’s.  They’re all important.

Be the source of inspiration for those who are struggling.

Be the source of joy for those who are feeling overwhelmed.

According to Jon Gordon, when you are grateful, you will find more things to be grateful for.

I would add that when you are optimistic, you will find more things to be optimistic about.

When you start looking for opportunities, you will identify them everywhere.

Yes, there’s just one of you.

You have limited influence.

You have a limited set of skills.

You won’t be able to impact everyone you meet.

It seems sometimes as though you’re a very small cog in a very big wheel.
