I long to accomplish a great and noble task, but it is my chief duty to accomplish small tasks as if they were great and noble.
Key to a centered and purposeful life is to approach every moment with the realization that you have the ability to create new futures and new realities with your actions.
You have been invited to tell the story of grace, peace, mercy, reconciliation, and renewal with your life. In fact, you are at times the very sign of these things in the world. We all want to do great and noble work, but many of us fail to live in the present moment, bring our whole true selves to the table, and take our place in the unfolding story.
It is in the small tasks that you create your path. It's the path that leads you to the great and noble work.
Be about being present, pursuing peace, and sharing your best self with the world. Those are great and noble tasks.
