“It’s not how much we give, but how much love we put into giving.” – Mother Theresa

Imagine we’re moving. And we have two friends, who both extend an offer to help.

The first friend writes us a check for 1,000 dollars to help with the moving expenses. Incredibly generous. The second friend doesn’t offer a dime, but instead comes to our old place, helps us pack up every box, drives with us to the new house, and unpacks everything with us into the early hours in the morning.

Fast forward two weeks later. Both friends call you to ask for a favor. Which friend are we more likely to help?

We would choose the second friend. But why? If we were to try to explain, we collectively would flow to the same, natural response… “Because they would have done it for me.”

Money has relative value. But time is an absolute.

If we want to make a “perishable donation”, give money.

If we want to make an everlasting impact, give time.

“Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I’ll remember. Involve me, and I’ll learn.” – Benjamin Franklin

The musician doesn’t learn by listening. The musician learns, by playing. It’s how the mind, in its ever plastic state, adapts. It responds to application.

In the “Cone of Learning” (Edgar Dale), we learn:

10% of what we read.

20% of what we hear.

30% of what we see.

50% of what we hear and see.

70% of what we say and write.

90% of what we actually participate in.

Information without application, is knowledge.

Information with application, is wisdom.

“The past is not predictive of the future.”

A short story to share.

Mike is an 18 year old high school student, who has struggled throughout his entire academic career… specifically, with taking tests. But he’s making his way by, just barely, until he reaches the biggest academic test of his life – his SAT’s.

Out of a near 1600, he scores 1480.

Mike returns home to his mother, and with all the love a mother has, questions quietly: how? How on Earth? Are you sure you didn’t cheat? They have dinner together, and celebrate his incredible scores as they talk about college.

From that point forward, Mike decides he is smart after all. After years of consistent skipping, he decides to go to class. He starts consistently scoring A’s, and doesn’t see a C for the remainder of his high school career. He goes onto the Ivy League, and starts a very successful magazine company. Mike grows a multi-million dollar business.

And six years later, he then receives a letter in the mail from the SAT board.

There was a mistake.

The letter reads that the scores were mixed up between him and another student.

As it turned out, Mike actually scored a 740.

People think his own life changed when he got the 1480. It didn’t.

Mike changed his life when he changed his behavior.

The past is indeed real. But the only time it becomes predictive of the future, is if it changes how we act… today.

“Your actions speak so loudly that I can’t hear what you’re saying.”

It’s not about what we talk about, but what we tolerate.

When we think of our greatest role models, those we truly look up to in life, there’s a consistent commonality we’ll notice… their action under adversity. They achieved something great, under incredibly hard circumstances. They overcame a specific challenge in their darkest hour. And for that, we remember them.

Our identity isn’t shaped by the good times… but the challenging ones. In those moments, it’ll never be about what we say, but what we do.

“Intention drives behavior.”

If we were to walk into the grocery store with a list of eight items to purchase, we’d be there for 10 minutes.

If we were to walk into the grocery store without a list, we end up walking the aisles for 30 minutes, and find ourselves staring at a box of Twinkies in the dessert aisle.

Our behavior is what is going to define our success. And it is no different than the grocery list in our pocket. Line items of decisions and principles that we choose.

Intention is everything.
