When you've already done what must be done, take the opportunity to do more. When you're on a roll creating value, keep on rolling as long as you possibly can.
Productive, meaningful effort adds real and lasting richness to your world. Never pass up an opportunity to engage in it.
It can be tempting to sit back and rest on your past efforts and accomplishments. Keep in mind, though, that when you're not moving forward you're falling behind.
Look at the work you do not as a burden or as a punishment. See it for the immensely valuable opportunity it is.
With your work, with your efforts, you can create meaningful and substantial value. Embrace the work, build the value, and move straight ahead in the direction of your dreams.
