“Since most of us spend our lives doing ordinary tasks, the most important thing is to carry them out extraordinarily well.”
~Henry David Thoreau
Most of us yearn to be involved in extraordinary, innovative activities. Unfortunately, there are actually very few opportunities to engage in extraordinary activities. However, every day has many opportunities when we can approach our normal tasks with extraordinary effort. In so doing, we elevate our existence and our contribution to ourselves, the people around us, and the enterprise we are engaged in. Taken together, these small but extraordinary efforts will yield greatness – likely greater than the single extraordinary activity we yearn for. You can be a real life superhero!
