Do Well What You Do

It is one of the ironies of life that, sometimes, one can accomplish more by slowing down than by speeding up. Have you ever felt the crush of time and so rushed to get things done only to find out that they weren’t done right or, at least, not to acceptable standards? You find yourself, then, starting all over again and the time spent nearly doubles what it would have taken to do things right the first time.

When we do that, we are stating to ourselves (and maybe to others, too), that what we are involved with isn’t worthy of our undivided attention. The tasks simply aren’t worth doing right. We are, somehow, above the work we are doing. The result is a lower self-esteem, self-imposed – we are doing unworthy work...

We live in a busy world. We are all multi-taskers. We have more to do than is humanly possible to get done. But that means we need to set some priorities and choose which things to tackle and which we don’t need to do and let those go. Always do whatever you do to the very best of your ability – you’ll be glad you did.
