The intention for excellence

Thursday May 26, 2011 #319

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

 ~Thoreau

I have learned this lesson from key mentors and in my own experience:  I am most content and inspired when I live my life with the intention for excellence.  No matter what the task or interaction, I strive to engage each with my best efforts.  I don’t always succeed and can find myself less energized and even depressed when I give less of myself.  When we focus with intention to bring the best of ourselves to every encounter and activity, we create amazing impact and bring about our own satisfaction and happiness.
