“Nothing endures but personal qualities.” – Walt Whitman
We all like the feeling…
of having had a quality day.
The question is how do we ensure it from the get-go?
Easy! Pick one.
Today, pick a quality that you’d like to experience more of in your life, or one which you already know you most enjoy experiencing.
Seriously — take 10 seconds right now to Google “human qualities list” and you’ll find a ton of simple personality and character traits to choose from.
Practice BEing that quality today.
If and when you forget, or notice yourself not BEing that quality, simply BE it again. (Sure, you can bring another one or two into the mix to help with that, like Forgiveness or Compassion.)
Then, at the end of the day, assess how that quality day left you feeling. If you want more of the same, pick it again tomorrow. Otherwise, pick from the smorgasbord of choices for your next quality day.
Quality day after quality day leads to quality life. Is that worth your 10 seconds right now?
If I can help bring additional quality to your career or life, schedule a private session here.
“You attract people by the qualities you display. You keep them by the qualities you possess.” – Unknown
