Gordon B. Hinckley, Where You Serve

It matters not where you serve, but how!” – Gordon B. Hinckley

Gordon Hinckley is a man whose life has been a model for me. While I mostly knew of him, by studying his biography and reading other material that he wrote, this quote truly is a reflection of the way he lived.

In my own life, I have tried to implement this thought, to put every effort into doing a good job no matter what the job. It isn’t always easy to do so and often it is worth the effort. Unfortunately depending on my work environment, the effort was only worth it to me or my team. Those around us in the organization didn’t appreciate the time, effort, and energy (of thought and research) to complete the job. Serve with honor.
