“If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music, or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.” – Martin Luther King Jr.
In honor of Martin Luther King Jr. day, I thought I would share one of his quotes I think of frequently.
This quote is my reminder of two important to dos.
First, to look for the little things to do for others. I don’t sweep streets, but there are little things that I can do every day to be of service to others. It doesn’t matter how small. Any time you have that moment of “what’s next”, try to think of something to do for someone else.
Second, no matter how small something seems, do it with a positive attitude and the best you can.
Make it a great day.
