Quality is in itself an item brought into being by way of the standards used to define whatever it is we are aiming to accomplish at that moment. Quality of thinking in terms of keeping our thoughts focused is vital if we wish to avoid the day running away from us by way of distractions and lost causes.
Our success in keeping our thoughts at the quality level desired is crucial to achieving anything of value. And the quality we offer to our actions derives from the said quality of our thoughts and intentions. We cannot expect to think ‘apples’ and produce ‘pears’.
Surrounding ourselves with people and objects that inspire us can help maintain a certain quality of output. We consciously or subconsciously attempt to raise our game in esteemed company.
How we are feeling right now will likewise impact on the quality of our efforts and perceived solutions before us. With a calm, balanced approach we could view things positively. On the other hand, when stressed or worried it can be difficult to see anything good.
As a subject for discussion quality is of course enormous. For now let me just close with the words of W. Edwards Deming, American management consultant: “Quality is everyone’s responsibility.”
