Weeds Well Done

What is a weed? A plant whose virtues have not been discovered. [Ralph W. Emerson]

Well done is better than well said. [Benjamin Franklin]

Fit for Excellence

Going for excellence? Coming sagacity, staunchness and even all-round wisdom is said to be a superior inner side of Zen mind. It can should be trained. [Cf. Sophocles]

Remember FELIX, which is Latin for 'cat'. FELIX harmonises with more elaborate schemes for building success on-site. Here is an example: [An all-round scheme]. Don't wait to adjust a careful, balanced FELIX approach to your life:

  1. Focus. There are methods for it. It may be trained. Good meditation generally helps.
  2. Sustained effort.
  3. Little else: Drop the distractions to devote time to things there is profit (or at least very potential profit) in.
  4. Implement well: See things through too.
  5. Learn to relax. At least in between.

To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is a great accomplishment. [With Ralph Waldo Emerson]

Excellence is the result of habitual integrity. [Lenny Bennett]

If you will not settle for anything less than your best, you could be amazed at what you can accomplish in your lives after a period of frustrations perhaps. [Cf. Vince Lombardi]

Excellence is also doing ordinary things extraordinarily well. [With John W. Gardner]

To achieve excellence, at least stop doing less than excellent work.

It can be next to impossible for a man to learn what he thinks he already knows. [With Epictetus]

Further Hints

To know how to do something is to enjoy it. [Pearl S. Buck]

Life is from the heart outwards.

You look at any first-class corporation, and they all started with a guy with an idea, doing it well - or two or more such guys and some risk-taking investors, good moral principles and not too slaughtering publicity - and so on.

Convenient conditions and perhaps also associates will generally be needed for great work too. We cannot always hope to realize our full potential alone and ill equipped on a drifting ice floe in the Antarctic region.
