Do More Than…


  1. Do more than exist, live.
  2. Do more than touch, feel.
  3. Do more than look, observe.
  4. Do more than read, absorb.
  5. Do more than hear, listen.
  6. Do more than listen, understand.
  7. Do more than think, ponder.
  8. Do more than talk, say something.

    Although you list is simple, it is great. My wife is the cafeteria manager for the local Junior high. When I read this list of advice to her she liked it so much that she wrote it all down on a little white board that she is going to take and display at the lunch line for the kids to read. Thanks for making me her hero for the day.
