I just thought of it this way. I never stop working. Mostly it’s related to learning, but my mind never stops trying to make things better; whether for me or attempting to find a solution to some of life’s problems that all humans have to deal with. I’ve been cleaning a lot at work lately and I feel like it’s related to my want to make things better.
I think my new rule is going to be that I will leave a room better than when I entered it. This will instill in me, over time, a long-term ability to make things better. And as I just realized, making things better is a lot harder than making things worse. It takes character, integrity, and a very strong drive to make things better, and I want to do what it takes.
