What Masterpiece Will You Create?

Violin workshop in Cremona, Italy

Recently, we visited a little town in Italy called Cremona. It is considered the birthplace of the violin. Additionally, the famous violin maker Antonio Stradivari was born in Cremona. His Stradivarius violins are considered the finest in the world. The whole town is full of violin shops where you can meet and talk with some of the best violin makers in the world. We went to a hall where very old Stradivarius violins, as well as other very valuable violins, are on display in glass cases. Each day, the instruments must be taken out of their cases and played for 15 minutes, or else they will lose their ability to produce such incredible tones. It is said that some of the violins sound better now than they did hundreds of years ago. The violins sounded truly superb!

One thing that really struck us was the power of doing something consistently each day. What masterpiece could be accomplished in your life by dedicating 15 minutes of every day to a task you truly care about? How could you sharpen your business skills or improve your 4Life organization? We have no doubt that if you commit 15 minutes each day to consistently working on one specific aspect of your 4Life business, the results will be dramatic. You may not become a violin virtuoso, but the success you create because of your efforts will be music to many people's ears.
