Do it well…

The sun sets on another day…

The line of cars waiting for sunset was impressive. I watched and there was no disappointment. Sunset was beyond words, and the stillness of Lake Michigan and quiet of the ice riddled shore made my heart feel good.

It is nice to be good at something. When I talk to people I try to relate and because I am old (Not quite the crypt keeper yet) I often can speak to people from a point of view that I at least know a little, and sometimes know a lot about what is being discussed.

I have found that in order to find your way you need to be good at something. Really good. If you become good at it either get better or become good at something else. It is in that sweet spot that you will find some self worth and some happiness. The spot of being good. I will take it a step further. IF you like what you are good at, you will be even better.

IT is funny/ Once you are good at something, if you move on you can get good again with out as much practice. If you are an expert once, it does not necessarily carry over, I was an expert in computer systems in the 70s. What I knew then means nothing to what computers are today. I read quite a bit weekly to stay informed and stay frosty in the computer world.

My point is, take your time, learn something to the extreme until you do it well. Then decide if it is what you like, and then consider being better or moving on. Don’t walk away from anything until you do it well.

So as the sun sets on another day, the sunset tonight was done well. I enjoyed it and the fiery lightshow that followed. Thanks for being you and doing well at what you love. Keep being amazing each day, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, be strong, and do it well…
