One paragraph to share personal good news. I’m off to a good start with the new job. I still intend to keep fire fighting and jiu jitsu and weight lifting (these biceps don’t get this way on accident!) But the new job is going well. My boss only has one picture on his wall and it’s of Pope Benedict XVI! And he quoted the Baltimore Catechism in today’s homily! A priest after my own heart!! God had mercy on me after this past rough year! Please keep this in your continued prayers.

And now for today’s topic, which will just mention 2 non-catholic sources that back up the first two blogs on this topic! Links are provided if you’d like to read or reread them!

The first new argument to mention on this blog is the Kaizen Method! In Japan, businesses use go by this philosophy which in short means improving in small increments. There’s a great book on this for self-improvement. It’s called One Small Step Can Change Your Life: The Kaizen Way by Robert Maurer.

The second new argument is from a philosopher who needs no introduction. Plato once said:

“Never discourage anyone who continually makes progress, no matter how slow.”

The Good Lord has much patience with me. I’m painfully aware of how far I need to go and how slowly but surely I hope and pray to be coming along.

Going short and sweet today,
