Twice a Day
While our "smart" devices took care of it for us, we had to "spring forward" a few clocks in our house and my office last Saturday. Personally, I'd like it if we joined Arizona and stopped the back and forth. Yet, until that day - if it ever comes, I will continue to spring forward and fall backward as we have done year in and year out.
I remember next to nothing about the high school graduation speeches that my classmates gave thirty years ago. I do, however, remember one of my fellow seniors seeking to encourage us with the statement that "even a broken clock is correct twice a day." Three decades later, I cannot recall his topic or point, much less his details; yet that one statement stuck with me.
We all have days when we feel as effective as a broken clock. Thankfully, most days prove more successful. Nevertheless, broken clock days leave a bit of a sting. When those days occur, try focusing on the two times you are right rather than the twenty-two that just refuse to go your way. Call those two what you will, while their number is even less than a few, they will get you through the less-than-Ordinary days. Count to two. Be grateful. Look forward to tomorrow.
