After Success

Each success only buys an admission ticket to a more difficult problem. (Henry Kissinger, late U.S. secretary of state)

It’s rather disconcerting, isn’t it, to achieve some measure of success only to find there are more tasks to pursue? You’ve just completed your school project or job assignment, and are immediately given another even more difficult task. Kissinger’s observation is probably not intended to discourage us but to prepare us to keep on pursuing the next goal and the next.

So whether we are here in this body or away from this body, our goal is to please him. (2 Corinthians 5:9)
