Perform With Exactness

Perform: to do, to execute, to accomplish

The way in which you perform can make a huge difference in how well you accomplish your task.

Psalm 119:106
I have sworn, and I will perform it, that I will keep thy righteous judgments.

Psalm 119:112
I have inclined mine heart to perform thy statutes alway, even unto the end.

Exactness: accuracy, precision

Like the stripling warriors you will be greatly blessed when you perform with exactness.

Alma 57:21
Yea, and they did obey and observe to perform every word of command with exactness; yea, and even according to their faith it was done unto them; and I did remember the words which they said unto me that their mothers had taught them.

Performing with exactness has to do with your responsibilities; the things that are expected of you whether from God, your self, your parents, your family members or your leaders.

Be A Doer

A doer does what is expected willingly, right away, completely, and they do their very best.

James 1:22-25
But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass: For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was. But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.

Do What Is Expected Of You

You will be wise to do what is expected of you, it shows great strength of character and will help you succeed throughout your life.

3 Nephi 14:24-27
Therefore, whoso heareth these sayings of mine and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, who built his house upon a rock— And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not, for it was founded upon a rock. And every one that heareth these sayings of mine and doeth them not shall be likened unto a foolish man, who built his house upon the sand— And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell, and great was the fall of it.

Do It Willingly

There is a big difference between doing something grudgingly and doing it willingly. If you are doing a task with a bad attitude it will affect your work, and you will not be able to perform with exactness.

D&C 64:34
Behold, the Lord requireth the heart and a willing mind; and the willing and obedient shall eat the good of the land of Zion in these last days.

Do It Right Away

If you procrastinate doing what you need to do, it is likely that you will run out of time to do a good job or you may forget to do it at all.

Alma 34:32-33
For behold, this life is the time for men to prepare to meet God; yea, behold the day of this life is the day for men to perform their labors. And now, as I said unto you before, as ye have had so many witnesses, therefore, I beseech of you that ye do not procrastinate the day of your repentance until the end; for after this day of life, which is given us to prepare for eternity, behold, if we do not improve our time while in this life, then cometh the night of darkness wherein there can be no labor performed.

Do It Completely

It is quite satisfying to complete something, so focus on the details and don’t leave any part undone. It’s also very impressive; think of Ammon and the way he did exactly what was expected of him.

Alma 18:10
Now when king Lamoni heard that Ammon was preparing his horses and his chariots he was more astonished, because of the faithfulness of Ammon, saying: Surely there has not been any servant among all my servants that has been so faithful as this man; for even he doth remember all my commandments to execute them.

Do Your Very Best

You have an opportunity to make things really shine if you put forth the extra effort into doing the best you can. Do things in such a way that you can be proud of your accomplishments.

D&C 64:33
Wherefore, be not weary in well-doing, for ye are laying the foundation of a great work. And out of small things proceedeth that which is great.

D&C 11:3
Behold, the field is white already to harvest; therefore, whoso desireth to reap let him thrust in his sickle with his might, and reap while the day lasts, that he may treasure up for his soul everlasting salvation in the kingdom of God.
