Are You Doing Your Best?

Opening and closing question marks

H.W. Dresser gave us this, “Be true to the best you know. This is your high ideal. If you do your best, you cannot do more. Do your best every day and your life will gradually expand into satisfying fullness. Cultivate the habit of doing one thing at a time with quiet deliberateness. Always allow yourself a sufficient margin of time in which to do your work well. Frequently examine your working methods to discover and eliminate unnecessary tension. Aim at poise, repose, and self control. The relaxed worker accomplishes most.”


This quote brings up a question it would be good to post on my computer screen and around my work area: “Am I doing my best right now?”


This one question is so powerful that it’s good to ask it often – because for me I’d have to say I spend most of my time doing – rather than thinking about doing my best.


A second great question would be, “Do I need to do this?” because focusing on doing our best on our highest priority items would certainly shift things –


Is checking email something we do our best at? Is surfing the web or tooling around Facebook something we can answer yes to on the doing our best question?


Today, ask yourself these two questions and listen for the answer from your heart.


You create your day by the way you think. Make it magnificent.

Blessings, Shawna
