Tim Russert and Tiger Woods inspire me to do my tasks with greater focus and determination

Good one …

They both inspire me to approach life’s duties with more focus and energy.  Russert worked at Meet the Press for some 19 years.  His integrity and outstanding work eventually became clear to everyone.  Woods worked at the game of golf from the time he was in diapers.  Most of us are doing mundane things tomorrow morning.  I am studying German and writing a paper on John Howard Yoder.  But I think Russert and Woods inspire me to do both of those things a bit better.  Work, excellence, focus, integrity . . . they are often done in the darkness of the mundane but these things do impact people.  Eugene Peterson borrowed Friedrich Nietzsche‘s phrase, "a long obedience in the same direction" for the title of his book.   Will we do what we are called to do tomorrow with determination to do it well?  Eventually, it will impact people and bring glory to God.  We can trust God for the results.
