“Start by doing what’s necessary; then do what’s possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible.”
– St. Francis of Assisi
Boy, oh boy, do I love this quote. St. Francis had it right when he shared his view of how he simply did the impossible, well, that is, after he did the “necessary” and then turned his attention to doing the “possible.” He is known as the patron saint of the animals, the earth and the environment. His works for simple, common people, especially those facing great difficulties in their lives, has had a lasting resonance for people all over the world in the nearly 800 years since his passing. Maybe you will not accomplish the “impossible,” but you can simply start with the “necessary,” and see where it goes from there. I am deeply inspired by him, in my own daily quest to “improve the world, one empowered and productive employee at a time.”
This quote was shared with me by an old friend, Angie, from Naples, Florida, who is widely known to regularly accomplish the impossible before lunchtime. For this quote, and for so many other kind deeds in the past, a sincere Thank You goes out to her.
