No. 16 The Golden Mile

And if anyone forces you to go one mile, go also the second mile. Matthew 5:41

The second mile is the fun mile. Being forced to do something is no fun. A client wants more than you expected to give and so you have work through the night, or during a party you wanted to attend; a teacher gives a lot of homework on your birthday, a friend begs you to do something that you don’t expect to like. Getting over the hump of doing what you don’t want to do is difficult. But the second mile, doing an excellent job at it, staying longer than you need to turns the whole situation on its side! The second mile is your own turf! It is where you adopt the idea and make it your own. The second mile is where the angels come to meet you to play. The second mile is golden; go there as often as you can. Joy.
