President Monson Shares One Crucial Thing to Remember, Especially When You Feel Overwhelmed

In today's world, there sometimes seems to be not enough hours in the day to accomplish all that we want to, including service. 

And with jobs, family duties, callings, and many other responsibilities, finding time to squeeze in other forms of service can be difficult or overwhelming.

In a recent Facebook post, President Thomas S. Monson shared great counsel for how we can serve others in small but impactful ways from his 2007 general conference talk "Three Goals to Guide You."

You are, of course, surrounded by opportunities for service. No doubt at times you recognize so many such opportunities that you may feel somewhat overwhelmed. Where do you begin? How can you do it all? How do you choose, from all the needs you observe, where and how to serve?
Often small acts of service are all that is required to lift and bless another: a question concerning a person’s family, quick words of encouragement, a sincere compliment, a small note of thanks, a brief telephone call.
If we are observant and aware, and if we act on the promptings which come to us, we can accomplish much good.
