“Determine never to be idle. No person will have occasion to complain of the want of time who never loses any.” – Thomas Jefferson
When I read this quote for the first time I thought of my dad, Ken Lake. To say he is never idle would be a huge understatement. He started a successful and profitable construction business in his early 20’s, went to college in his early 30’s (valedictorian), got a masters in his early 40’s…oh did I forget to mention he helped start and literally built a bible school in Brazil while this was going on? I actually got to help him create a gravity feed water system for the dry seasons…I got a shovel and bug a well 30+ feet down (I can’t make this stuff up). Currently dad, has backed off a little and started 3 or maybe 4 church plants in federal prisons.
The point is, my dad was never idle. He always moved forward and did his best. Plus, he did this with a extremely meek attitude. YOU CAN DO THE SAME THING!
