Measure Up   Measure Up Minute   Scout Minute

This Minute is meant for Boy Scouts.
How big is this room?
How big is our town?

What are you doing when you answer those questions? - you are Measuring Up. You look something over and figure in your head a rough estimate.

We do the same thing every day with ourselves.
Am I strong enough?
Am I smart enough?
Am I ambitious enough?

And, we do the same thing with people we meet.
Am I stronger than him?
Will he advance faster than me?

Measuring Up happens all the time. We are always evaluating, estimating, and comparing. That's how we make choices.

When I think:
That's too heavy for me to move.
That's too much homework.
That's too cold for camping.
I'm really just measuring myself against the task at hand and finding myself inadequate. Unfortunately, people often give themselves less credit than they deserve. Chances are, you can do much more than you think you can.

The next time you Measure Up, add 20% onto what you think you can do and then give it a try.
Did you try it and like it?             Or hate it?
