Any and Every Thing

“The way you do anything is the way you do everything,” was a phrase I heard this weekend at a training event.

I had to let that sink in.

“The way you do anything is the way you do everything.”

I have this habit of doing “good enough.” Not all the time, but usually around mundane, unrewarding tasks.

If I’m washing the dishes, I’ll wash everything but one pan thinking it’s better than it was.

If I’m walking in the neighborhood, I’ll cut the walk short thinking at least I walked.

If I’m feeding a healthy meal to my family, I’ll include one unhealthy item thinking at least we eat better than most people.

Even as I type I’m realizing how this habit shows up everywhere: marriage, parenting, ministry…I’m really into this good enough thing.

But is God calling me to good enough or best?

Well the Word tells us in Ecclesiaties 9:10, Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might.

How might my marriage, ministry, parenting, etc. exceed expectation if I completed the “mundane” tasks associated with each with all my might?!

So this week I vow to do better. Not “good enough” better but “all my might” better.

How does the phrase “the way you do anything is the way your do everything” speak to you? Please comment below.

With God all things are possible,
Dr. Celeste

    What an amazing thought and statement. I realize I am in the same boat and think I will take the challenge to be “all my might” better. I want to be all God has challenge and commissioned me to be and He deserves “the best”, so the process begins right now.

    • Hello Jamie, I was just reading today in Romans 2:13, “For it is not those who hear the law who are righteous in God’s sight, but it is those who obey the law who will be declared righteous.” Not only are you a hearer of the Word, but a doer. Well I guess we are in this thing together. 🙂 God we give you our best from this day forward and when we fall short, gently place us back on Excellence Road. Be blessed Jamie!

  2. Wow, this is good, definitely has me more conscious of how I think and do things! Thanks for sharing!

    Whew Dr. Celeste! Walking down my street today. I’m a little frustrated in my current job right now, and KNOW that I have this ‘good enough’ attitude as I sit here from 9-5. Even with Col: 3:23 taped to my desk! But your post convicted me. I am going to pray that God will work with me to allow me to express an attitude of excellence and not just ‘good enough’ even though that is what my flesh wants to do. LOL!

    • Kia I understand completely because I have been there, but until my attitude changed God wouldn’t move me. You’ve heard the call and I believe you will change as a result. God bless!
