Daily quote and Reflections: Work and Play tied to Personal Vision

Quote: “The master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his information and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence in whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he’s always doing both.” Zen Buddhist

Reflection: The key idea in this quote for me is the notion of having a vision of excellence that guides your daily activities. Once you create and own a personal vision then your purpose and strategies for fulfillment fall into alignment. As Tom Peters, the management and leadership consultant once said a leader  ” allows people to become more than they’ve ever dreamed of being”.Tom Peters on Excellence
