Here are six quotes I’ve been thinking about related to digging deep into whatever is in front of you, making uninteresting work interesting.
… nearly everything is really interesting if you go into it deeply enough …
G. K. Chesterton:
There is no such thing on earth as an uninteresting subject; the only thing that can exist is an uninterested person.
To see a world in a grain of sand,
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.
Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might …
If you’re enthusiastic about the things you’re working on, people will come ask you to do interesting things.
Wisdom is in the presence of the one who has understanding, but the eyes of a fool are on the ends of the earth.
