Whatever your life's work is, do it well. A man should do his job so well that the living, the dead, and the unborn could do it no better.
--Martin Luther King, Jr.

If you are going to achieve excellence in big things, you develop the habit in little matters. Excellence is not an exception, it is a prevailing attitude.
--Colin Powell

Being excellent is liberating and empowering. We are all designed and destined for excellence through all aspects of our lives. Being excellent builds on itself. Starting in the morning, be excellent at preparing for your day. Be excellent at your commute. Be excellent at how you buy your morning coffee. Be in the habit of being consciously aware of how you are performing each task. If you are in the habit of going through the motions in how you conduct the smaller mundane things, it has a way of creeping into the bigger aspects of your life. Relish every moment, and be excellent at every task.

Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; remember that what you
now have was once among the things you only hoped for.

-- Epicurus

If we want to achieve our goals, while at the same time being happy and successful we need to have what Jack Canfield calls high intention with low attachment. Set the goals, set the target, and then let go of your attachment to it. Staying too attached to the outcome, or "spoiling what you have by desiring what you have not" is a lot like an impatient child's constant refrain of "are we there yet" on a long trip. It can spoil the trip, and after all it really is about the trip and not the destination.

The more books you read, the more likely one of them will have an answer to a question that could solve the major problems of your life.. make you wealthier, solve a health problem, whatever it might be.
-- Jack Canfield
