John Maxwell’s word of the day is “duty”. As he points out, this is not a very sexy word. In fact it has a slightly negative connotation to most people. However, there is much honor in duty.
In this day when you can have it now and make no payments for a year, we often lose site that success in most things comes down to hard work. Duty – doing something just because it’s the right thing to do and it’s your responsibility to do it.
Things like being an honorable spouse while away on business, setting a good example for your children, and treating people the way you want to be treated. Often in business, duty is doing those things that seem menial, but are absolutely critical to keep the gears of progress turning.
So today, think about what duties you are responsible for. Do them with a renewed sense of importance. As we are seeing with the NFL playoffs, it’s the basics done consistently and well that creates a champion.
