Doing great work

You have much to get done, and that’s nothing to get wound up about. Let go of the drama, of the pressure your mind has constructed around it, and let your best effort happen.

Make each action a choice, not a chore. Decide to see your obligations and responsibilities in a positive light.

Don’t make your work more difficult by considering it a burden. Just take the next step, and the next and the next, thankful for the opportunity to do your part.

Dial down the pressure and angst, and you dial up your effectiveness. Rise above any tinge of discontent, and enable your creativity to flow.

The way to feel your best in this moment is not to wish you were somewhere else doing something else. Feel your best by cheerfully doing your best, right here, with the task at hand.

Remind yourself what a good place you’re in. And give your awareness, your focus, your effort to doing the great work you know you can do.

— Ralph Marston
