The Distinction Between If or How

There’s a fundamental difference between the things you do every day, every single day, and the things you do only when the spirit moves you.

One difference is that once you’ve committed to doing something daily, you find that the spirit moves you, daily.

Rather than having a daily debate about today’s agenda, you can decide once that you will do something, and then decide every single day how to do it.

When it comes to what we do everyday we can choose between we’re going to do or how we’re going to do what we’ve committed to.

Commit to doing certain things each day with the only question being how, exactly, you’re going to do it.

For example: you can decide that you are going to help solve problems today – that’s the given.

You just have to decide how you’re going to do it.

Much better than deciding if you’re going to solve problems today.
