i want to do big things with my life. i want my years on earth to count in big ways. there's a certain renown i want to further... and it's not mine.
sometimes i get frustrated because there are a lot of abilities and qualities i don't have that seem to be the ones people need to accomplish big things.
but... i was encouraged when i read this:
“The people who are exceptionally good in business aren’t so because of what they know but because of their insatiable need to know more.”
(we read this book and discussed it in the leadership coaching network i was in. Gerber was writing specifically for business people, but the principles in the book - including this one - apply to any type of organization.)
for the record, i think "insatiable" is a great word.
that sentence GRABBED me! because thankfully... that's ME!
not necessarily the "good in business" part... but God has blessed me with an "insatiable need to know more". which some days i have felt like it is a curse. but i know it's not. it's a blessing. i hope i can steward it well.
i do not know a whole lot but i have this undeniable entrepreneurial spirit inside me coupled with an insatiable need to know MORE. it's not just a "desire", but a need that i can't do anything to squelch. i hope that can combine with all my shortcomings and imperfections to produce big things.
