WHO exactly are you trying to please?
They don't offer a Nobel Peace Prize for most of what we do, so if not the judges, then WHO?
Try Colossians 3:23-24 It works great for me!
23 Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, 24 since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.
