Hey World, 4WORDS is the Motion; Living To Be Known that is. It's your favorite Royal Service Man, Valet Del Roy. I am very thankful that you are here and just want to send some encouragement your way today.
So I've been listening to Proverbs. Each day I play from chapter 1 to whichever day I'm on in the month. So today it's chapter 20, then 1-20. I like proverbs and parables, wisdom literature, and poetry of all kinds. The practicality. The imagination. The principles.
So I find myself thinking in particular about one lately. Proverbs 12:14 written by King Solomon, which says "A man will be satisfied with good by the fruit of his words, and the deeds of a man's hands will return to him."
So I focus on three things:
What does this have to do with being effective though? I'm so glad you ask.
We like to see results. We have intentions, and imagination. We think deeply and feel deeply and try hard. And still sometimes it seems like the things we intend are ineffective. Well, you're smart. You manage to live through each day so take that credit and smile. But being smart, thinking deeply, feeling deeply and speaking truth won't bring you the results you want without purpose and action.
Though we be satisfied with our words and our great brains, only the work or deeds of our hands and actions can give us results. And that needs some direction. A person x their words x their doing= effectiveness. And from there you can then see HOW effective those deeds are and then set your mind and words and actions properly to increase the effectiveness of your work.
You may want to have great relationships, communicate well, get your finances in order and accomplish a number of goals. But without a purpose that you can name and some work, all that "being satisfied with...his words" may just turn to a new proverb, 25:14 "Like clouds and wind without rain is a man who boasts of his gifts falsely."
Is your purpose to have solid principles and practices? Work it out.
I love y'all. Hope this encourages you and makes sense because my editing skills ain't so savvy. Lol

Valet Del Roy here, and, I am very grateful that you are also here. Please, don't follow me, please, partake with me. How are you? I know many of you that read along and to those I do not, "Whaddown... How you live?"... a greeting I use pretty often. I'm on a timer right now so I'll get to it.
Lately, I've been struggling with writing about the things I converse about. I'll explain. I can't write as well as I can talk. I almost grit my teeth every time I think about it. I like communication. Speaking, video, music, and writing. I just simple do not write enough. Over last few years I've been practicing in each way to better my communication spectrum. This year, it's writing.
So here's the thought. I was asked recently, "So you're doing all of this for what? what are you trying to be in the world, bro? famous? a rapper, speaker, poet, author and humanitarian? a family man? what's up?"
I was like, "So yea, I do all that... but, you know what, I really Don't want to be famous. I want to be Effective."
And then, after over an hour of fleshing out ideas, that had us so far from our original conversation in topic, but not in principle. After then hitting everything from politics to religion, social economics, the media, the town, our home towns, and a few good memories. We were able to wing it back to our goals.
We chose that being Effective is an Exploration worth Endeavoring to it's Entirety. Was that poetic or what? Lol.
