When no one is looking

What do you do when no one is looking?

A few days ago, I was walking around our neighborhood, and I noticed something interesting happening at a home that recently sold.

My neighbor, the exiting homeowner, was up on a ladder cleaning the leaves out of the gutters.

At first I didn't think much of it, but after reflecting, I was moved.

This guy just sold his home — along with the leaves in the gutter — to a stranger who will likely never even know his gutters were recently cleaned out.

I was humbled by this act and grew a deep respect for my soon-to-be former neighbor.

It's easy to do great things when you have an audience, but what do you do when no one is looking?

Inward. Onward. Upward!
