Who are you when no one's around?
I was watching an episode of Doctor Oz this week. A quote from one of his guest's this week caught my attention. Dolvett Quince from The Biggest Loser said "How you do anything is how you do everything". I thought, how true is this! Basically, how you tackle everything, from small to big, minor to major and inconsequential to significant; what stands out is that your approach is usually the same and this will lead to the end result. For example today I went out to my patio before it got too hot in this Arizona sun. I had gardeners here earlier this week do a clean-up but I thought some fine-tuning was in order. So, I dug under the bushes and removed all the dead debris. Now probably, none of my guests would notice if I had debris under my bushes. Yet knowing it was there bugged me. So I had to get it out. Same thing, I then ventured into my house and since I had the cleaning force within me today, I replaced a bulb in my laundry room that was burnt out for about a month. Since it was in a high ceiling mount fixture, I just kept ignoring it. Finally, the deed is done. As I was up high I looked over at the top of the cabinets. Yep, there was dust. Of course, the force was with me. So I cleaned the dust from the cabinet tops. OCD? Maybe... But I say its what you do when no one's around that not only will be the driving force for what you do when other's are watching, but also tells the true nature of your character.
You know this reminds me of one of my favorite country artists, Blake Shelton, and his song "Who Are You When I'm not Looking". Check it out.
This wasn't meant to be a self-promoting post. Yet, you can be assured, when I tackle a job whether anyone is watching or not, I want the job done to the best of my satisfaction.
