Wheresoever you go, go with all your heart. – Confucious
Great sentiment, huh? No wonder the dude gets quoted all the time.
So in life, no matter what it is you’re doing, throw yourself into the work with every fiber of your body and every neuron of your brain. Some tasks will take all you’ve got, with learning curves that arouse the stubborn in us all: I will not be defeated! Others will seem a piece of cake, but still you can find a superior way of performing and a more fulfilling experience if you go with all your heart.
I’m talking the gamut here. From cleaning the bath tub to writing your memoir, from the important project for work to cleaning the rain gutters (I know it’s Summer and all, but here in the S.F. Bay Area our summer day is gloomy. That’s how Summer day always are here: Summer rainy and summer just chilly. That’s an old Henny Youngman joke. Don’t know who he is? Ask an old person. They’re very handy to have around.)
Go with all your heart. Is there any reason not to live this way? Every experience is better when you’re striving to do well and paying attention to the details. I love details. Every little thing is important. Details add up to life. Life is just details. Don’t dismiss them.
I think I’ll go attack the mountain of laundry that needs folding, and guess what I’m going to have fun doing it. Me, the cats, tons of laundry and good music. What a pleasant way to spend a little time.
Smile. Be happy.
