Always take time to ponder the important.  Yes, your professional position is one thing, and that is definitely important, but there are much more important things.  They are your faith, your family, your friends, and your future.

No matter who you are and no matter where you have been, these four things are much more important than your business or your professional position.  These four things lead to wellness, wholeness, and balance.  Granted, a business or a professional position is important.  It is simply not the most important thing.

If we never ponder our faith, family, friends, and future, then we do a disservice to them all.  I will not tell you what to do because that is intensely personal and only you must make those decisions.  However, I will urge you to take some kind of positive action in these four important areas.

Pondering the important is something from which we always derive benefit.  When we invest in our faith, our family, our friends, and our future, somehow our business and our professional position benefit automatically.

We are not human doings.  We are human beings.  Let us focus on the being before we focus on the doing.  Things just work out better that way.
