Continuous effort – not strength or intelligence – is the key to unlocking our potential.
Mom shows continuous effort in her writing. I guess writing for a little while each day is continuous effort…
Just when she thinks she’s getting better, somebody tells her the word, “Too easy.” and “Not enough conflict.” and “The solution came too fast.” She’s using her continuous effort to listen and change the way her stories end. And to unlock her potential. Life needs to be tougher for Mom’s characters.
Not so with me. Life is tough enough for this doggie! Exhibit A – My PupJoy subscription box came the other day. Right on my birthday!
It was filled with toys, treats, and surprises. I looked closely…
and I sniffed and sniffed,
but the box remained closed up tight.
When Mom saw my helpless-hopeless-hapless-face, she got the box open and gave me the goodies. That guy, Winston has the right idea. I didn’t need any strength or intelligence at all to get that done.
I think responsive is overrated. Look how cute I look!
No strength or intelligence needed here.
Watch me walk nicely, like a good girl, right next to Mom. Continuous effort…. Potential unlocked!
