The Next Right Thing

Our lives are a series of choices.

It can be the simplest of choices, such as going to bed at a reasonable hour, so I don’t oversleep. To the hardest of choices as who gets to be in the inner circle part of my life. My daughter and I discuss this quite often, and we always decide to do the next right thing, and let God do the rest.

I’m reading “No Excuses“, by Brian Tracy and recommend it highly. It’s a refreshing read, reminds me of some things I know, but have forgotten, and Brian is just good.

He said something, similar to the title of this Blog post, but he took it one step further. He’s talking about doing the next right thing and he said, “Practice the Universal Maxim of Immanuel Kant: “Resolve to behave as though your every act were to become a universal law for people.”

Every act become law? I don’t know about you, but I can think of a few things I wouldn’t want the entire world emulating. Each person has their own set of morals, but what kind of world would it be, if we all just did the next right thing?
