It Will Not Last Forever

Reggie Miller was my favorite NBA player during the nineties. That’s why I wasn’t a fan of Michael Jordan's and his Chicago Bulls.

Peja Stojakovic was my favorite NBA player during the early to mid-2000s. That’s why I didn’t like the Spurs, the Mavericks, and the Lakers (or any team from the Western Conference for that matter).

Four common things about them:

  1. They were both NBA players,
  2. They were both sharpshooters from the three-point territory,
  3. They (probably) loved basketball, and
  4. They are both retired.

No matter what happens, there will come a time when we can no longer do the work that we love, no matter how much we love it.

Even the legendary Michael Jordan is already retired no matter how masterfully he played the game.

I don’t think I can continue blogging well into my nineties no matter how much I love to write.

Our work will not last forever. 

We might as well enjoy the work that we do now, while it lasts.

More importantly, let’s do the best work that we can do today.

We may not have another opportunity to deliver our best work tomorrow. Who knows, right?

Lastly, it feels nice to work honoring and thanking God for the opportunity we have been given. We just don't know until when it will last. Make the most of it.
