Seeing the extraordinary in the ordinary

Thursday September 25, 2008 #69

 “Since most of us spend our lives doing ordinary tasks, the most important thing is to carry them out extraordinarily well.” 

~Henry David Thoreau

Today you will probably be faced with a number of mundane tasks.  For most people, our lives are made up of many ordinary, mundane activities.  Some will look at that reality with boredom or even despair, lamenting the lack of “meaning” and excitement.  But others will look at each of these seemingly ordinary, mundane activities as opportunities for greatness.  You see, the reality of our lives is that we have opportunities for greatness every day of our lives – simply by treating our everyday activities as opportunities to do those activities extraordinarily well.  And often, when you do ordinary tasks extraordinarily well, we will find incredible rewards will come your way.

Today’s assignment:  treat every activity as an opportunity for excellence and see what a difference this can make in your life!
