What Would I Do?

Hello  Everyone!! just sharing to you this story which was forwarded to me!!!
hope you get some insights!! Bye and wish you a great evening!!

What Would I Do?

"Everything's perfect," Dr. Stewart said.

Dr. William Stewart is my wife's doctor. She asked me to come
along for her routine checkup. She feels better when I go with
her. Dr. Stewart has been my wife's doctor during the eight
years that we have been married.

I looked at Dr. Stewart. He was vibrant; his skin was as smooth
as a baby's and his face radiant. Dr. Stewart actually looked
younger than he did eight years ago. One of his sons is a
doctor in the same specialty as his father.

"When are you going to retire?" my wife asked in conversation.

"I'm not going to retire," Dr. Stewart promptly answered without
even stopping to think about it.

"What would I do?" he added.

"I've bought and sold several boats, I don't want another one.
I don't want a house in the mountains.
I have more patients now than I did when I was younger.
I have everything that I want now.

What would I do if I retired?"

After dealing with many in both business and ministry, I have
become more sensitive to real reasons, the underlying motivation
behind the statements. I understood what he was saying.
I could feel his spirit in that simple question.

"What would I do?"

Most people dread going to work.
Dr. Stewart cherishes it.

Most look forward to being able to do nothing.
Dr. Stewart looks forward to another day helping patients.

Most look at the clock counting the minutes until quitting time.
Dr. Stewart wishes there were more hours in the day.

Being a doctor is not a breeze. Doctors have one of the highest
suicide rates of any profession. It is strenuous and demanding.
Doctors also have one of the highest rates of personal
satisfaction of any profession; it just depends on the doctor.

Joy always depends much more on the person than the profession.

Dr. Stewart is happily married with four successful children;
work is not an escape, it is a passion.
There is a big difference.

Passion helps keep you young, in both mind and body.
It usually shows on the outside when you have passion on the
inside about something good.

To be able to do something each day that you are passionate
about is a blessing beyond price.

It is like being paid to play.

The average person spends more time involved with work than
anything else. Adding the time at work, getting ready for work,
and getting to and from work, we average 12 hours a day. With
eight hours of sleep, we spend 75% of our waking hours for work.

What a blessing to WANT to work, even if you didn't have to.

Imagine getting up each morning with an enthusiasm to get to
work. Imagine an enthusiasm to get home to your family.

At work and at home, you are fulfilled and have no desire to
retire from or change either.

So fulfilled that you couldn't imagine wanting anything else.

Imagine that.
