In the spirit of New Years Resolutions, since we believe in sharing our traditions and commitments here, I have two.
1: Get to the gym every single day. Even if it is only to walk in, stretch and walk out.
2: Read 60 books. That may seem like a lot, and it is, but Audible at 3x speed is my go to cheat code. I will read, physically, at least a dozen.
Those are the two main ones. Of course I would like to step away from labor and focus more on the management side of things, but I can’t put a date on that currently, continue to grow spiritually as a Catholic, but for us that means continuing to go to RCIA and finish some paperwork that will take some time.
Those two specific goals cover most of the other larger things I want to accomplish, or at least, they help to facilitate healthy growth in other areas.
One of my favorite books of last year was the “One Thing” by Gary Keller and Jay Papasan, which helped trimendously to focus my time and energy into their most effective uses, which started simply by asking:
“What is the one thing that I can do, such that by doing it, everything else becomes easier or irreverent?”https://www.the1thing.com/
For my wife and I, our Ultimate “One Thing” is Jesus Christ and continuing to grow in our relationship with and knowledge of Him. By continuing to delve deeper into the Scriptures, His Church, the teachings of the Catholic Faith, and applying them to our lives, it has changed dramatically everything else.
However, we have found that the different areas of our lives…
…. All require their own tiers of focus and “One Things” if you will.
This is nothing new, hitting two birds with one stone, as the saying goes, but the idea needed new life, at least for us, for it to make sense and put it into practice.
That is part of the reason we’re doing what we’re doing with Project Volk, to simplify and answer the above question in regards to drivers and their vehicles.
The answer, we found, was bringing the service center to them, ether at home or work.
Mobile Vehicle Restoration is only the beginning.
