The way you do one thing is the way you do EVERYthing.
I am sure you heard thsi before. I certainly have. It is attriubuted to ZEN-buddism but are truly universal. If you cant do one small thing the way it should you will not be perceived as able to do anything “right”. You must pay attention to the details. How you handle and manage any situation, challenge or experience in your life is how you probably handle all of them.
Because how you do anything is how you do everything, it is important to be honest about how you do the “anything”. How do you perform at work? What are you friendships like? How do you approach a challenge?
If you are a small business owner, do you know what clients and cutomers think of your performance and do you think it matters? If you want have happy customers (an also to suceeed in life and business-life) you need to have a strong foundation. The fastest way to become successful is to commit to excellence in everything you do.
When you commit to doing every task the best you can – from the household chores to your work tasks – you develop a habit of excellence. Please know that “excellence” does NOT mean “perfection at every cost”. Excellence means treating all things like they are equally important (because they are). A happy and mentally stabile you will lead to happy and satisfied customers.
Do you fully understand how you do “anything”? And, if you aren’t fully satisfied with your “anything”, perhaps now is the time to break old patterns and set a new standard.
