Biscuit of The Day

The master in the art of living make little distinction between their work and play, their labor and their leisure, their minds and their bodies, their information, their recreation, their love and their religion. They hardly know which is which; they simply pursue their vision of excellence at whatever they do, leaving others to decide whether they are working or playing.  James A. Michener

This is what separates the good from the great. Engage in life with your whole heart. When its time to work work hard when it is time to play play hard. Use the same zeal at work as you do at play and you will be astonished at the transformation in your life. God placed us here to have joy. Find joy in the journey even if the journey is down the 60 freeway to your job in Phoenix. Men are that they might have Joy. The key word is might. Look for joy and it will find you. 

Thank you for reading

  1. Great post Bill! The words you speak are true. To many of us are afraid or to lazy to work & play hard.The famous words of President Hinkley "Just Do IT!" Life is too short to sit back and watch it go by.We need to learn to live it to the fullest.
    Miss having your wonderful family in our ward. Hope all is well with you. Hugs, Bobbi Jo

  2. I remember Zig Ziglar once said "whatever you do, do it with all your heart. Even if you're loafing. Get up early and get a good start at it, do some major loafing."

    I love the word rejoice, because it shows that the joy mostly comes from within us, it is the result of right thinking about any situation. We can enjoy the most mundane things, like the drive into Phoenix on the 60, if we have the right attitude about it. Thanks for your thoughts.
