Besides his regular job, Duane did freelance consulting from home. When a freelance client needed a quick turnaround, Duane promised to get it done.
Just as he finished the project before his regular workday, his computer burped. Suddenly, disastrously, Duane lost everything. His commute was miserable. He pounded on his steering wheel and drove too fast. Arriving at work, he took deep breaths. He considered his options . . . then asked his boss for permission to use a few personal hours.
And Duane started the project over.
This is Howard Butt, Jr., of Laity Lodge. Duane got creative in how to persevere. He met a deadline for one job without compromising another . . . it's the high calling of our daily work.
The man of integrity walks securely, but he who takes crooked paths will be found out.
