Four Daily Tasks


"According to my tradition, from the beginning of creation, every morning, when the sun comes up, we are given four tasks by our Creator for that day.

First, I must learn at least one meaningful thing today.

Second, I must teach at least one meaningful thing to another person.

Third, I must do something for some other person, and it will be best if that person does not even realize that I have done something for them.

And, fourth, I must treat all living things with respect. This spreads these things throughout the world."
