“But whoever looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues in it – not forgetting what they have heard, but doing it – they will be blessed in what they do.”
I am constantly trying to narrow the knowing/doing gap. For example, you want to fix customer service at your business so you offer a customer service course, read a book on customer service, have customer service training, and get customer service jerseys. Then, what happens? Customer service stays the same.
The knowing/doing gap is when we learn, but we don’t put our new knowledge into practice. So, let’s put into action these things we’ve been learning about thankfulness:
1. Create a list once a day of five things you’re thankful for. Give it six weeks and see what happens.
2. Text or call someone different every week just to share your love and appreciation. Do that, and see what happens. One friend texted her out-of-state niece, and within a week they had found a way to meet and are now texting regularly.
PRAYER: Dear Lord, thank you for all that you do for me. Each day I can make a list of so many blessings and reach out to loved ones with appreciation. Amen.
REFLECTION: Which technique brought you the most happiness – the list of blessings or the special calls/texts to someone you appreciate?
