Work at it.

Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might. [So,] whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as though you were working for the Lord and not for people.  Ecclesiastes 9:10 (NASB), Colossians 3:23 (TEV)

“It is not only prayer that gives God glory but work. Smiting on an anvil, sawing a beam, whitewashing a wall, driving horses, sweeping, scouring, everything gives God glory if being in his grace you do it as your duty. To go to Communion worthily gives God great glory, but to take food in thankfulness and temperance gives him glory too. To lift up the hands in prayer gives God glory, but a man with a dungfork in his hand, a woman with a slop pail, gives him glory too. He is so great that all things give him glory if you mean they should.”  Gerard Manley Hopkins (1844-1889)
