Sure it looks like millions of others across the country but did you spot that rectangle in the corner....that is my daily dose of direction.
It is a quote from Helen Keller I stumbled upon over a year ago in the Restoration Hardware Holiday catalog of all places. (See it pays off to scour over home decor catalogs and magazines--hehe)
The quote is printed in a white font on a brown background so it is hard to photograph, but it reads:
" I long to accomplish a great and noble task: but my chief duty
is to accomplish small tasks as if they were great and noble."
It reminds me that all the repetitive and mundane tasks I complete in the day are only so if I view them in that light. By choosing to view the tasks in my day as meaningful and worthwhile I don't get discouraged as easily and find ways to take pleasure in what I am doing.
How about you, have any quotes you use as your daily dose?
