Details, details, details.
It’s in the details.
Lovely, delicate, intriguing details.
… On Day 1 of #100HappyDays …
The details are the harbingers of happiness
from my garden to my heart.
I say: “Hurrah to Being Detailed-Oriented!” because
- The true secret of happiness lies in taking a genuine interest in all the details of daily life. ~ William Morris
- It’s the little details that are vital. Little things make big things happen. ~ John Wooden
- This is what customers pay us for — to sweat all these details so it’s easy and pleasant for them to use our computers. ~ Steve Jobs
I say: “‘Being Detailed-Oriented’ is NOT the answer
to that job interview question:
‘What is your greatest weakness?’”.
- Be happy that you notice the details. Give your skill its rightful place. Honor those details.
To Celebrate the Details of Life!
~ Jackie Yun
In coaching clients, I tout the benefits of “awareness” and
the need for a practice of awareness.
When my TwitterFriends
“Can You Be Happy for 100 days in a Row?
Take the Challenge”
I knew this was just the practice I needed for myself.
- Over the next 100 days, I will take a photo each day that commemorates something that made me happy. I will share each photo with you though not necessarily daily.
- For this practice, I will engage with gentleness and flow. I’m hoping to transform my task-master self into becoming comfortable that results can come about in a more spacious way.
- I see this practice helping me live My Three Words for 2014, a yearly ritual that Jacqui Barrett-Poindexter (@ValueIntoWords) introduced to me:
➤ Flowers: Encouragement to do what’s important with grace and beauty because life is fleetingly short.
➤ Heart: Reminder to live from the heart because the heart can be an equal partner with the head, even in seemingly mind-dominated situations.
➤ Enrich: A daily ask: Am I enriching others by my actions? Am I enriching myself?
- I know I’ll be able to “claim” something valuable at the end of these 100 days. I’ll be curious whether I’ll experience the same “goodness” that others experience. Per 100happydays.com, people claimed to:
- Start noticing what makes them happy every day
- Be in a better mood every day
- Start receiving more compliments from other people
- Realize how lucky they are to have the life they have
- Become more optimistic
- Fall in love during the challenge (?! — my comment)
