Life Principles: Quality

The small things are the big things.

How you do anything is how you do everything. (Josh Waitzkin)

Fragments from imaginary dialogues

“What’s the Quality principle about?”

“The basic idea is that how you do anything matters.

Expressed as a principle:

Always do your best, regardless of what it is.

With a different emphasis, how you do anything matters.

In practical terms, Quality has three benchmarks: Presence, Effectiveness and Efficiency.”

“What’s the difference between Effectiveness and Efficiency?”

“To use a metaphor:

Efficiency is about how well you climb a wall.
Effectiveness is about climbing the right wall.

Expressed as principles:

Be present in everything you do.

Seek effectiveness and efficiency in everything you do.

For me Quality also means looking at everything through two value-lenses [<link; medium read]: Beauty and Loving Play [<link; short read].

Expressed as a principle:

Do everything beautifully, lovingly and playfully.
