How You Do Anything Is How You Do Everything!

The reasons are endless for NOT doing a job well – don’t have the time, don’t have the resources, don’t care, did not sleep well last night, the work is not important, the work is important but I will get it right next time, my co-worker does it poorly so why should I do it well, nobody is watching, nobody will know, who cares anyway, it’s Miller time, etc.

There are really only two reasons for doing something well and correctly: 1) It matters to someone or something else and 2) It represents my personal best and the standards I have set for myself.

If we do not have standards for ourselves then we will never have standards for anything. If we think we can do some things poorly (the things that don’t matter to us) and other things well (those that do matter to us) then we will end up doing NOTHING well. How you do anything is how you will do everything. Moreover, if we think we can be mediocre at work but then excel at all other aspects of life then we are delusional. We often spend more hours at work then we do with our families. If we perform poorly with our families then we will perform poorly at work. If we perform poorly at work then we will perform poorly with our families. This is simply how things work. If you want an exceptional life, then have standards that exist no matter what the task, who is looking, or if you think it is important or not. 

How you do anything is how you do everything.

Last, if you want to excel, make everything you do important. Figure out the “why” behind every task. And if you honestly can’t figure out why a task is important, then ask some others for their perspective. If nobody knows why it is important then it gives you a chance to change a protocol or a task to make it important and able to be done well.

How you do anything is how you do everything. Thank you for joining me in this journey.
