Edgar W Work said, 'The real tragedy is not in being limited to one talent, but in the failure to use that one talent.'
To make the most of your life:
1) Maximise what God has given you. Edison set himself an ambitious goal: to come up with a major new invention every six months and a minor one every ten days. When he died he had 1,093 patents. Edison made his dreams a reality by sticking to what he did best. Are you doing that?
3) Focus on what God called you to do. Music was everything to Brahms. He collected music and studied compositions going back to the 15th century. He worked day and night to perfect his craft, refusing to publish anything that didn't meet his exacting standards. That's why he didn't publish his first symphony until he was 40. And he never married, saying it would distract him: 'I am in love with music, I think of nothing but, and of other things only when they make music more beautiful.' Is that fanaticism? No, it's focus; it's what makes your life count! It's why Paul said, '...this one thing I do...'
