No More

Every day there are choices to make. Yes, there are some things that we may be told to do by our boss or we do things at work that we just need to do because they are part of what we are required to do but how we do them is where we make some very important choices.

These choices aren’t made or determined by those around you, your family or your boss. They are made by you and you have control over them.

Don’t settle. Don’t settle to do average, good enough or second rate work even if those around you seem to think it’s alright. If this is the case you may need to rethink who you let be around you and possibly influence you. Don’t settle to coast because you are in the final few years before retiring from your chosen profession. (Yes, Todd Gordon I’m looking directly at you. )

Better yet never look upon yourself as average, good enough or second rate. You have been blessed with incredible and unique gifts that you can use to help those around you. You just have to make the choice to use them.

Say No More to average, good enough, and second rate and say hello to Exceptional, Outstanding and First Class! That’s a choice worth making for yourself and those around you.

Made For This Moment is a collection of writings for living day to day on the journey that we are all on. Todd Gordon is the Director of Activities at Greene County Community Schools in Jefferson, IA. He has been in education for 36 years serving as a teacher, coach, and an administrator.

Todd wants to help you on your journey any way that he can because he believes that we are all better when we go through life together and with teammates.
