If the grass looks greener on the other side… Stop staring. Stop comparing. Stop complaining. And start watering the grass you’re standing on. (Eugene Cho, non-profit leader)
It’s an old cliché, but it’s also true to life, isn’t it? Things on the other side of the fence often seem so much more attractive than what’s on our side that we are tempted to jump the fence. Cho wisely advises us to stop thinking that way. If we work hard where we are now and renew our commitment to the present task, we will no doubt see our own grass become greener.
Pay careful attention to your own work, for then you will get the satisfaction of a job well done, and you won’t need to compare yourself to anyone else (Galatians 6:4).
