"Do It Anyway" poem by Mother Teresa

with 2 comments

Over two years ago, I posted this poem by Mother Teresa, and today I encountered this poem again through DZ. Ideas and questions that come back to you again and again may mean something worth pursuing, this is a sign from the nature / God for me.

Do It Anyway

People are often unreasonable, irrational, and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies. Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and sincere people may deceive you. Be honest and sincere anyway.

What you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight. Create anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous. Be happy anyway.

The good you do today, will often be forgotten. Do good anyway.

Give the best you have, and it will never be enough. Give your best anyway.

In the final analysis, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.

Tips: kind words

leave a comment »

Quoting Mother Teresa, kind words can be easy and short to say, but their effects are everlasting. Please correct me if I am wrong.

(1) MAXIMIZE USAGE of POSITIVE words, MINIMIZE NEGATIVE words

One of my colleagues RR used the words “nasty” quite often during our discussions, and it somehow discouraged me. Not to worry, I have another layer of defense: intrinsically I will not be affected by what others say.
My goal is clear: to get our project completed.

(2) Please, Thank You, Sorry
