The Next Right Thing

Our daily 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 and miss another Monday morning Conference Call, at 6:00 am. To the hardest of choices as to 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.

hardI’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 subject of this Blog post, but he took it one step further. He’s talking about doing the 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.”

What kind of world would this be if everyone in it was just like me?

Well, it would be a happy place for sure, but this really made me look hard at myself. 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.

So, that was my thought for today out here Inbarbsworld. What are your thoughts on the subject? Please, feel free to comment. I’d love to hear from you.
