What’s Your Job?

After a speech a woman came up to me to thank me for my message. She told me she tried to live by similar principles. Then she told me of her time in the hospital battling cancer.

She described her prognosis as short of terminal, but not short enough for comfort.

But she refused to define herself by her health struggle. Instead she gave herself a job.

She set a goal that however people felt walking into her hospital room every nurse, every doctor, every employee who entered her room would leave happier than they were when they entered.

She created a job that made her a better person. It helped her feel better. And it helped her win her health battle.

So what’s your job?
