Audio / Produced by The High Calling


There was no denying that Ken had a tough assignment at work. And there was no doubt that Ken was dodging that assignment. He had a hundred excuses—and he used them—to delay getting started.

This is Howard Butt, Jr., of Laity Lodge. We can procrastinate and use elaborate excuses, but they all blind us to one simple fact: the best way to start a job . . . is to start the job! . . . in the high calling of our daily work.
