One would gather that after transitioning into a functioning society as a productive individual, that Monday mornings would eventually be clockwork. Though for many it’s the most unproductive period of the week, outside of the moments leading up to Happy Hour on Fridays.
So in working on a project in the bitter cold this morning, I thought of an old quote by Dag Hammarskjold that says, “a task becomes a duty from the moment you suspect it to be an essential part of that integrity which alone entitles a man to assume responsibility.”
We all possess the desire to be successful, or else we wouldn’t be doing whatever it is that we do. But a critical key to that success is also possessing the ability to focus on the task at hand.
