Flying from Raleigh to Boston to Las Vegas recently for speaking events, I came across a movie called Imitation Game.
The 2014 movie is the story of Alan Turing.
Alan was born and lived in the UK from 1912 to 1954 and is now widely considered to be the father of theoretical computer science and artificial intelligence.
He was only quietly prominent until around 2009 for his significant contribution to breaking Germany’s Enigma secret code machine.
That contribution is credited for shortening World War II by more than two years and saving 14 million lives…AMAZING!
Here’s the reason I’m writing about him today.
Alan is quoted in the movie and in real life as saying:
“Sometimes, it is the people that no one imagines anything of, who do the things no one can imagine.”
So…if you ever feel like wall paper or that you are unnoticed, remember that it’s the contributions you are making, the gifts that you are sharing, and the efforts you put forth to make someone’s world a better place that really matter.
Even if you are never openly recognized or become famous to more than just a few, remember that life is worth living when you are making a difference, even just a little one.
Today…even better, right now…take a moment to stop and think about the people, the individual people you serve and have served.
Those efforts made a difference…I guarantee it…even though no one might have ever imagined!
Smiles, have a GREAT week and Keep Building TRUST...Mark
