Going the extra mile for yourself means you try a little harder to get the task done — you give more of yourself, your creativity, your effort. You’re not settling for “good enough.”
Going the extra mile for someone else means you sacrifice for that other person — that time you need for yourself? You give it to that other person. That creativity that is one of your best qualities? You bless them with it. Your effort is focused on them.
Going the extra mile . . . it’s all about more, not less. And it’s funny how that part of the road is less-traveled.
In Your Words: When was the last time someone went the extra mile for you? Stop and think for minute: Is there someone who needs you to go a little further for them — give a little more of yourself — so they can succeed?

Where have I been lately (besides this blog?): I was invited to be the guest author for Southern Writers’ “Last Word” column for their May/June issue.
