What Have You Done For Me Lately?!

I woke up this morning with the thought that "every day is an interview". Each day I should be 'on my game' and reinterview for the important "jobs" in my life. My jobs?: husband, father, brother, son, friend, and business leader. Each day I need to remind my beautiful wife through words and deeds that she made a good choice in choosing me 23 years ago. I need to reinterview and be on my best game as father to my children. As brother to my sister - my only sibling - and son to my parents and Heavenly Father. I have to renew my commitment to my friendships and be true to how I presented myself at the 'initial interview'. I must continually add the value I sold to my profession and daily add that value.

The song by Janet Jackson "what have you done for me lately" from back in 1986 - yikes - had some wisdom to it. Every day is an interview. Dress to impress and be determined to win at all the jobs I've been blessed to possess!


  1. Daily add value ... yeah, 'cause in 40 years, no one's going to look back and say, "you know what, I had too much time on this planet. I should have wasted a few more of those days."

    I'm still waiting for the CJ Daily Dose of Inspiration app for my phone! Get on that, will ya? :^)

  2. Powerful words, my friend! And testament to us all! Thank you for always sharing your thoughts with us. <3

  4. @Misty - uh never mind, I just figured it out!! :) Really appreciate your encouragement!
