Pay attention

While doing whatever you’re doing, do that and nothing else. Excellence comes from focused effort, not from halfheartedly trying to do too many things at once.

Pay attention and you’ll find opportunity in the details. Pay attention and you will find beauty in the texture. If it’s not important to you, don’t do it. Otherwise, give it your complete attention.

When you dilute your efforts, they become feeble. Seek instead to concentrate, and you’ll achieve peak performance. Greatness and clearly focused effort go hand in hand.

Bring the entire focus of your attention to bear upon anything, and whatever it is, it will be magnificent.

— Ralph Marston
