I first heard this quote on “The Go-Giver Podcast” and am taken with it.

How you do anything is how you do everything.

It’s a simple idea, but profound. If I do basic tasks, like sweeping the floor, half way, I will be more prone to do everything that way. The same is true if I do my best work. I want to do all things to the very best of my ability, making sure that flows from menial tasks all the way to the important ones.
