Your work is an excellent commentary, for as you are, so you labor. (George Washington, first president of the United States)
We hear a lot from political candidates about what they will do if elected. In job interviews, applicants are often asked what they would do in certain situation. A better question would ask what they have done in such situations” It’s not what you think you would do that shows your effectiveness; it’s how you have worked and what you have accomplished.
All hard work brings a profit, but mere talk leads only to poverty. . . . One who is slack in his work is brother to one who destroys. (Proverbs 14:23; 18:9)
