Faster Than A Speeding Bullet

I once asked my mother what job she would do if she could do any job in the world.

"Be a concierge," she said.

I blinked a few times.

"A concierge? Like in a hotel?" I asked.

"Yes."

"Why in the world would you want to be a concierge?"

"Because I would like to be able to make things happen for people," Mom said.

I couldn't help but smile; what Mom called a concierge I envisioned more as a cross between a fairy godmother and a mob boss. Her desire was to make sure that deserving people had what they needed and wanted, to be able to pull out all the stops, to be able to quickly, quietly, and efficiently meet and exceed expectations.

Imagine we could all do that — every day and in everything we do. That would be a truly super power.
