Excellence is the art of doing small things well.
If we can do the mundane well. The boring stuff well. Then our excellence at the medium size and large scale tasks will be automatic. When we are unable to take pride in doing the small tasks well then we excel at everything we do. Because, every task sooner or later becomes boring and mundane. We naturally go through phases of feeling this is interesting or this is boring.
Therefore, Excellence is giving your best no matter what the task is. It is an effort guided by a noble purpose. That is, cleaning the garden of leaves is a noble purpose, it says I like to live in a clean space both inside an out. It says I pride myself, I am not lazy, I am not blind to the mess in the house or outside.
Excellence is also in thought, words and actions. I am always learning, growing and changing. I Excel in making I a better person. For example, A seed excels in becoming a fruit tree, and it bares fruit. In the same way I excel in becoming the best version of me in every small task.
Nature is a lovely example of excellence in just being beautiful and whole.
I excel in be approachable, giving smiles to all I meet, giving a ear to those who want to be heard. I excel in ironing the clothes, cleaning the house, cooking etc. I excel in saving money, not wasting water, being economical in they way I work – aka working smart.
We always think about excelling at work and at a career and of course that is important, And that is probably much easier to do than excelling at the boring chores, the curtsy of being a good human being to myself and to others.
Excellence is being a beautiful person – just being good , caring, kind and compassion. Taking pride in the small things and doing them well. Enjoying the company of the young and old whole heartedly. Walking at the pace of your parents or grand parents, of the little one that just learnt to walk. Excellence is being Kind and wise.
I hope you liked this different take on Excellence.
