Do Do Do Run Run Run

In Strength of Service… I shared, “I know that 2021 for me will be a path where Service is the foundation of a true sense of joy… practiced with Panda, my Circle and those I am most intent on serving going forward.”

And it will. That said, this week is crazy busy for me with cluing up papers and exams for College. With that in mind… Day 15 (Wednesday, December 16)… through Day 11 (Sunday, December 20) will still be about deepening on the path of what it might look like to strive to be…

  • “as a lamp unto them that walk in darkness, a joy to the sorrowful, a sea for the thirsty, a haven for the distressed, an upholder and defender of the victim of oppression.”

But more specifically, this week is about the DOing. I have a lot to do over these next few days… and it is time for deeds over words.

How does all this connect? It is about Countenance and Gate, walking the walk and talk. As I do what needs be done, I act upon those words above; being guided as I move. These few days are not about traditional reflection but they are about driving my CAR… considering, acting and reflecting as I go. And it is about delivering. Sometimes you just got to go do, do, do, run, run, run and learn as you go. That in mind, this post will not be shared until Wednesday so by time of reading, I will be 2 days in on that Do Do Do Run Run Run.

You cannot be guided unless you move.

Peace, passion and prosperity…

Done and Do

“You will never get it all done.” This was advice given to me at a fine Italian restaurant in New York (in July 1997) by J. Oliver Crom, then CEO of Dale Carnegie and Associates. His point then resonates ever more so for me now. We think we have to “get it all done”… but it will never happen. That does not imply we should do nothing. It does imply that we must choose what we will do. That is one take on “done”.

Another plays in my heart and mind this day; things around which I am “done”. With work concluding on my new website, and amidst teaching online and living through a pandemic and historic times, I am finding more of the Watchmen referred to in my last post. Trials and triumphs alike are pointing to that which I am “done” and that which I intend to “do”.

I am done with any importance placed on fame or fortune. I will do on good work done for good reason, with good people. “The betterment of the world can be accomplished through pure and goodly deeds, through commendable and seemly conduct” resonates for me deeply.

I am done with any emphasis on rewards over effort. I will do effort over outcome. “Let deeds not words be your adorning” speaks to my heart.

I am done with “popularity” over purpose. I will do ardor over image. “Arise then unto that for which thou was created” hammers into my Soul.

I know the work I simply want to do. I know the life I simply want to do. I know that for which I am done; the hollow and meaningless. And now, over the next 16 days ahead of November, I am going underground. Oh, I will still be teaching online, and working my work and taking care of business… and living my life. But I will not be “out there”. I will be “in here”… in my humble home… The Greens… the “Bat Cave” for Panda and me. During that time, I intend to prayerfully, purposefully and joyfully ponder more on that for which I am done and that which I am ready to do. I will explore my own faith. and let my purpose ever closer find me. And I will do it SLOWER. I will detach.

My thought to you is think on the aspects of your life which are “done” for you and what you will “do” about it going forward. See you November 1.

Peace, passion and prosperity…
