gordon b. hinckley said, "do the best you can. but i want to emphasize that it be the very best. we are too prone to be satisfied with mediocre performance. we are capable of doing so much better."
i think i've allowed myself to forget the importance of this.
doing my best doesn't mean simply doing what i'm barely supposed to -- going to school, working, reading my scriptures, doing some studying, preparing my sunday school lesson the day before (or the day of)...
it's just not enough.
i need to go to school and learn. i'm at byu, the greatest university ever (yes, i'm biased. you should ALL be here), and i need to take advantage of this tremendous blessing. i need to work, the full 20 hours a week, so that i'm not living off yogurt and apples and granola bars. i need to not only read my scriptures, but study them, and ponder them, and pray about them. i need to study my hardest so that i can get a great gpa. i need to prepare my sunday school a week before, and be thinking about it!
shaylee k -- it's time to be your very BEST.
anyone with me?
