Excellence is the next five minutes

Sometimes you just come across a person who you just KNOW you have to listen to.  For me, that was apparent to me when I first picked up The Little BIG Things.  Here’s a blurb from a recent page I read that I had to share:

“I’ve had bad days and weeks and months and, indeed, years. Yet the
measure of worth remains the attitude toward the next minute to come:

‘I long to accomplish a great and noble task, but it is my chief duty
to accomplish humble tasks as though they were great and noble.’
—Helen Keller

‘We do no great things, only small things with great love.’ —Mother Teresa

If not EXCELLENCE, what?
If not EXCELLENCE now, when?

EXCELLENCE is not an aspiration.
EXCELLENCE is the next five minutes.”
Tom Peters

What are you going to do with your next five minutes?
