Common sense is the knack of seeing things as they are, and doing things as they ought to be done.

Make excellence

Focus on a corner of your world and infuse it with excellence. Apply effort, focus, creativity, and persistence to produce an environment, an idea, an object, an experience of excellence.

Even if no one ever notices that excellence, you will always know about it. Your life and the lives of others will benefit from it.

An exercise in excellence, no matter how small, spills over into other parts of your world. The habit of engendering excellence, once acquired, raises your expectations for every endeavor you undertake.

Your time is arguably your most precious resource. You owe it to yourself to spend time in ways that yield excellent results.

Dedicate yourself to excellence and it bolsters your ability to meet challenges, makes you more purposeful, and reverberates positively throughout your being. In seeking to create excellence you find yourself living with excellence.

Where you go, with what you do, make excellence for the sake of excellence. Demand excellence from yourself and you’ll experience life at its best.
