What You Do Matters

We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop. –Mother Theresa

The more I grow, the more I appreciate what other people do. Think about it, what would the world be like without:

  • People that work in nursing homes and take care of the elderly on a daily basis
  • Nurses and doctors working countless hours in the hospital
  • People that work construction and build our roads, houses, and buildings
  • Moms that stay home to raise their kids
  • People who work in children’s ministry so people can enjoy church while their kids are being ministered to
  • People that work at Starbucks!
  • People that drive school busses
  • People doing research in labs to make all of our lives better
  • Police officers that keep us safe
  • People serving in the military keeping us safe and defending our rights
  • Teachers and Professors
  • Pilots and flight attendants
  • People that work with the homeless on a day-to-day basis
  • Administrative assistants
  • People who work in finance

It may be easy to underestimate the value of what you do, but it’s even easier to underestimate the impact of what you do. Ask yourself, “What would the world be like without me doing what I do?” I promise you’ll come to the conclusion that the world NEEDS you to do what you do!

The next time you find yourself feeling insignificant because of what you do, think about why what you do makes the world a better place.

If what you do makes the world a better place in any way, it’s not that insignificant at all.
