Transforming small tasks

Uncategorized

Helen Keller has been a pillar of inspiration for several generations of people, including yours truly. She was an American author, political activist and lecturer, and the first deafblind person to earn a Bachelor of Arts degree. Her life story has become known worldwide through film and stage productions of The Miracle Worker. Keller’s teacher, Anne Sullivan, believed in her student’s potential and helped her to break through the isolation imposed by a near complete lack of language. Helen blossomed as she learned to communicate, and her influence became widespread. Despite this, nothing was too menial or unimportant for her; instead, she found a way to make each undertaking meaningful. She wrote:

“I long to accomplish a great and noble task, but it is my chief duty to accomplish small tasks as if they were great and noble.”

How do you transform your small daily tasks into something of value?

Choices or abilities … ?

Uncategorized

J. K. Rowling, author of the celebrated Harry Potter series, wrote that:

“It is our choices…that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities” .

It would be very easy to dismiss her comment, assuming that her phenomenal imagination and writing talent led her to live a golden life. But as those of you who are familiar with her life are aware, Rowling’s story can be characterized as much by her tenacity as by her talent.  Her choice to persevere in writing – in the face of seemingly overwhelming obstacles as a single parent along with many initial rejections from publishers – led to the birthing of a legacy.

So the next time you find yourself thinking that you are defined by your abilities, stop and switch tracks immediately. Focus instead on what is most important to you and what your deepest values are.   Then you can show your true colours – and share in connecting something bigger than yourself!
