Make Your World Extraordinary!

By: Robert White Wednesday March 5, 2014 comments

"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 at whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he's always doing both."
James Michener

Except for the inclusion of many masculine – and no feminine – pronouns, I really like the wisdom inherent in these words. (Michener wrote Hawaii and other epic novels at a time when there was less sensitivity to equal rights!)

Recently my friend Walt Imhoff passed on at age 82. His wife Georgia preceded him in death four years ago and this power couple were examples of what Michener is describing – total excellence in every area of their lives.  I will always miss Walt and Georgia and honor them as examples for me to emulate personally and professionally.

People sometimes ask me about my apparent fixation on “extraordinary.”  A full explanation takes more time than my one minute read promise.  I will say this for now: extraordinary and a “vision of excellence” are closely related.

With love and respect,
