Thoughts, Comments, Notes of The Excellentway Society:

Welcome!

Salute The Day!

A beautiful day somewhere in the world, include yourself, be a part of it. It's all up to you.

NOW IS the perfect time!

Those good ideas, those plans sitting on the back shelf, those field trips you are waiting to take. Consider your whole life, choose some great idea, and go for it. Now is the perfect time.



A. EXCELLENTWAY COMMENT: "Try To Be Excellent Method #1"

Twice a year, on 5/31, and 12/31, cleanse your life, renew and re-establish your life. Touch every square inch of your life, discard the unused or unnecessary, remove all clutter. Be Lean and Mean (passionate). Notice those things that you have not even touched in the last 6 months, or perhaps used only once, and decide if it should be placed in storage, given away, recycled or thrown out. Make more room to see clearly. Repair, replace, or adjust your life until it is excellent, and then try harder. The effort may take years but eventually your world will grow better and larger, just for seeing more clearly. Your life is one small move at a time, like a chess game. Use your head, but follow your heart. Live with reason, passion, strength, and kindness, and do what it takes, to Try To Be Excellent.

TEYU: Touch Everything You Own!

Consider, Evaluate, Dispose, Recycle, Re-position, Elevate, Re save, Upgrade, Renew, Clean, Store Out Of The Way, etc.

Or, don't wait until those dates. Start now. Now being the perfect time. The more time you waste making excuses, the less time you have to get it done. Touching and evaluating every item, every space, every aspect of your life may take years, but a better understood, simpler, organized life is better for you and for those around you. Not to mention that the journey is reward in itself. Try to work from a base of wisdom and efficiency, to reach larger and better goals. Give yourself a chance, plan your self a way, an Excellentway to make your world a better and simpler place, and by example encourage those around you. Be Strong, Wise, and Loving.

You are helpless among others except for two things. What you give. What you become. You cannot make someone love you, be honest with you, or dream with you, except by example. Wonder Fiercely! Create Constantly! Stop being timid, Try To Be Excellent, Even Extraordinary.

The kind words of a single person can change the entire day, the week, sometimes a lifetime of others. Be good to your friends, nice to strangers, extraordinary to the ones you love. Love is its own world. You can be a part of this world, but it is not something you can really own. You can destroy it easily with selfishness, fear, or lack of surrender, but it always demands certain actions. In any situation, love has a direction. If you truly love someone or if someone truly loves you, they will act in a predictable way. Otherwise it is something other than love. Most people trade, barter, or simply find furniture to add to their living room, always making their world better for themselves, never loving further than their own nose. Try to be truly loving. Be a part of this force rather than using the words to your own ends. Remind the person you love with a kiss. If alone, remember that someone is waking, looking for you. Give them something nice to find. Try To Be Excellent. Just be as loving and magical as you can be. You will surprise yourself if you try! Don't do excuses, don't give yourself the easy way out, just make the plan, do the plan. Use your head, follow your heart. Don't give up and don't give in.

SIAT: Store It All Together!

It is a common and ordinary idea to store our things and accumulated life around us without thinking twice about it. Consider storing most of your things together in one place. Use chrome or stainless steel racks and plastic tool boxes to keep most of your things in one specific area, each marked by label or tag indicating the contents. Remove the clutter and seldom used items out of your immediate realm. Stop being a pack rat and surrounding your person with items hiding behind cabinets or in drawers, most seldom if ever to be used. Keep the most important, sentimental, encouraging or needed items closest to you. Take the rest out of your view so you can see more clearly, feel more enriched with less, be more organized and efficient! Remove most of the storage areas that crowd your living space into one main dedicated reference space. Let storage be something you visit, retrieve something to use, return when finished, and go through twice a year to delete items unnecessary. In case of emergency easily remove the most important, all ready encased in a plastic tool box. Surprise yourself, guests and friends, with your simple love of life and open spaces instead of cluttered storage all around you!

B. EXCELLENTWAY COMMENT: "Work Excellent Projects Method #2"

Reach as far as you can with all that you can. Reach a little further than is possible, stretch to try and grasp that world just beyond your reach. Keep a good hopeful spirit, try to encourage yourself. Believe in yourself, that you have the power to make things better, to create better worlds, to help others around you, to be extraordinary! And you will!

Keep to the plan. Despite those things that keep getting in your way; lack of time, lack of funds, lack of inspiration, lack of confidence. Just keep to the plan. Remember those projects that you never finished? Remember finding some evidence of your old efforts on some project you abandoned? Remember how you smiled at yourself for all your time and effort you once devoted, and your sadness at not trying harder? At not finishing it? Remember what you have. An idea, that perhaps no one else has quite the same, and even if many people share the same thought, how many actually struggle with it into reality?

Ways to help:

1. In Your Face. Place your project, your notes, physical items, always about you, in your sight, with you in your car, in your pocket, memos on your phone, etc. If within your immediate presence, more likely will be considered by you.

2. List Next To Do. List the next step you need to accomplish. When you come back to working on this project, you see the next thing or group of things that need time and effot.

3. Be Patient. Don't be too impatient. Spend days, months, years, on your idea. Many great ideas evaporate at the first failure points. Remember that failure is a byproduct of trying, and almost nothing fails to fail along the way.

4. Believe. Believe that it can be. Success is the door that finally opens, after failing at many other doors. However if you don't believe the door will open, you won't ever reach for that door. Magical things happen to those who believe.

Our minds flirt from one idea to another, there being something good and creative, even necessary, about it, and something negative and distracting, even demeaning there too. Most of our projects succeed because they have occupied the most of our time and efforts, combined with other favorable conditions.

Persistence is often the key. To supply some kind of dedicated attention, focus, thought and consideration to your goal, no matter how small, applied over and over, until the idea takes on a life and substance of its own.

A planned discipline, a system, that can be applied in the face of hardship, makes the effort easier.

Decide a goal, lay a path, apply a system, be flexible, creative, do whatever it takes as long as it is honorable, but be persistent. Every so often look back at how far you have come, and celebrate your place, wherever you are, because you are making it happen. Your setbacks are just a part of your success. Take encouragement there and then watch where you're going. Jump ahead, and have a great time.



C. EXCELLENTWAY COMMENT: "Work Excellent B.O.E Projects Method #3"

Strive for B.O.E Project Result. Best On Earth Project.

Anyone can duplicate the common and ordinary. Truth be told, this is often good enough for most days and nights, and for most persons who compare a project or specific possibility, and work it into a mostly adequate item or result. The profit first mentality of the world demands this small, petty, and selfish method and a lack of pride and dis-interest in quality produces the common and mediocre world found all around us.

However, why stop? Why not consider, not just the good project result, but an excellent project result? Work for the best possible Earth, the best possible human existence, the best possible method or item.

Compete with others, and ultimately, yourself, for the Best On Earth Design of your project. Then attempt to build your ideas into a Best On Earth Project!

The cost is irrelevant in this consideration. The time and effort required is irrelevant. The impossibility of it all must be ignored, not considered except only in passing. When these considerations and negative philosophies fill your mind, there is no room to be creative, to have hope, to imagine, or to create a Best On Earth Project. Let no one else cloud your thoughts or your honorable ambitions, especially, yourself!

Seek to be the exceptional project. Attempt the extraordinary. Enable the possibility. Build something good, then make it something great, then make it something extraordinary, and something truly excellent!

You can, if you try! You will, if you devote yourself to it! You may, find yourself laughing at it all! Only then will you know that you are on the right path!

When some crazed but beautiful idea breaks that plane of reality and becomes real and possible, first in your mind, and then in the world, smile at it all! Excellent! Blaze the trail ahead until it is something extraordinary to you, some lasting beauty to its design and something new and excellent there before you!

Create something Best On Earth, and enjoy the struggle as you go! Laugh with the others who are laughing at you, but be serious your commitment, your dedication to it! One single thought is often the difference between success and failure. Be strong, wise, and loving! Keep an excellent attitude!

Your efforts are appreciated! We salute you and those who fight the good fight, fight not just for the mediocre, the good, but for the Excellent!



D. EXCELLENTWAY COMMENT: "Ride The Waves, Find the Shore Method #4"

Ride the days of mediocrity, but eventually look and find the shore.

One can not just dream, plan, and then conquer a project, in one swift move, at least most of the time... There will be days of inactivity, waiting for others, waiting for more funding, looking for ways to bridge that gap from one idea or phase to the other... There is often experimenting along the way, deciding the most appropriate path and necessary revision and evolution. Take some hope in the past, where you remember other projects and the same frustrating times. Such inactivity, such waiting, is part of the overall design. Don't go crazy, and don't bother others in some fanatic way. Smile at those excellent projects you have completed in the past. After your success you will forget all the hardship and bask in the morning sun, the glory of it all. So too, these current hard and frustrating times will become faint memories. Keep thinking and working other projects, consider the world around you, what other excellent things you might do. Do something physical, some kind of hard work or enjoy a concert, a movie, or dinner. Ride the waves without doubting you will reach the shore. You will find success, without knowing exactly the entire path before you, but by conquering one wave at a time, letting yourself drift with time, keeping a steady and resolute pace.



E. EXCELLENTWAY COMMENT: "Consider An Excellent Item Method #5"

Consider an excellent item to encourage further excellent efforts.

Build on the excellent things around you, your excellent attitude, your excellent accomplishments. Settle for no less. Take one minute to look at an excellent item, or to consider some excellent accomplishment. See it from every angle, touch it, lift it and turn it in your hands, or consider and remember it in your mind. Think of nothing else and let nothing else distract you for 60 seconds.

Mold your life something like this, the next thing you will do, the next plans or project before you. Follow the excellent example before you, and build from there. Take the best and expand on it. When you are surrounded by poor examples as we all are on a daily basis, try to ignore and dismiss them.

Instead, consider what would be good, and then demand what would be excellent. Do what it takes to fight the mediocre, and promote the most excellent. Let no one stop your excellent attempts, especially yourself! Have an excellent day! If fate stops you in your tracks, help make it an excellent day for someone else. Your day will come. Ex Days To You!



F. EXCELLENTWAY COMMENT: "The Word, Excellence..."

"Excellence."

Yes, just a word, but the idea often ignored.

In this modern world, quality efforts are seldom encouraged.

It is often more about quickly getting something done, doing it for less, letting it be good enough, and making the most money. Lasting beauty, quality of result, enlightened design, hardly considered.

We have mostly lost our pride in doing an excellent job or no job at all. Craftsmanship and quality are just words of salesmen, harping cheap and inadequate products.

Let the word "excellent" be more than just a word.

Let it frame your life. Settle for nothing less. Demand the excellent, and do what it takes, to make your world, our world, something excellent.

Your efforts are appreciated. Thank you.



G. EXCELLENTWAY COMMENT: "Get More Efficient..."

If one's life is nothing more than one project after another; rise, eat, do what must be done with a docile heart , do that which nags at you and claws at your sanity, also doing those things, those actions and projects that make you smile, that brings you somewhere forward and helps your soul, creates the world you wish to know one step at a time, etc., then one can make a very conscious decision to build a system, an Excellentway Lifetime System that helps you on your way. Create a system to do more with less effort, and gain more confidence by following best of life practices.

When you have an idea, where does it go and what comes of it? Most often some brilliant flash of inspiration, some little comment to ourselves or another, and then gone again... Only to often re-appear when something triggers your mind, a place, a word, a vision before you...

Note it immediately. Then place it in a certain place. Then go to that place to consider it. Then assign the project its own space. Add and subtract ideas and actions to this project, assemble the physical items it demands, experiment, and give it a life. Then nurture it until it becomes something excellent. Then done, or at least done for now, enjoy your excellent result! Stand back and admire your hard work! Embrace the thrill of something excellent finished and there before you!

Your life nothing more than one project after another. Assemble a few projects before you, then 50, then 100, then perhaps, a few thousand... Keep in mind the projects you envision and act upon, which create the path of your life, and represent the life that you lead. Envision your own path, or it will be decided for you. Move towards the excellent light, the warmth, an excellent place that is the life of you, that is your best soul expressed there in word and deed. Live in an excellent manner! Be Excellent about your life!



H. EXCELLENTWAY COMMENT: "One Small Step Method"

Train yourself to celebrate small steps. All of life is one small step at a time, like a chess game. One attempts to consider the whole game, chooses some kind of strategy, and plays in that direction. However, circumstances often do not favor your choices. In that case it is often easier to just give up. However, consider a better and more glorious accomplishment, denying the obvious, ignoring the reality, turning from the overwhelming odds against you, and just pushing on!

Tighten your hood around you, zip your coat tighter, and just keep on trying! Not stupid, not afraid, not taking the easy path, but turning into the wind and struggling forward one step and then another, and then one more... Look around you! The world is full of people who have given up and stand there pitiful before you. But for one more step, one more piece of hope, one more ridiculous attempt, success would have been theirs. When the storm is against you, see yourself from afar. Across the desolate face of Earth, all those who have tried and failed... They encourage you to try harder and not to fail, not to give in. Their voices command you; Push On! The goal is near and safe.



I. EXCELLENTWAY COMMENT: "Layers Of Detail Excellence"

Apply one layer of Excellence to your project, idea, method. You create something excellent and are happy with the results. Then consider some detail of it, or the thing as a whole; asking yourself what would be even better, what might be even more excellent?

It is like considering your kitchen floor. You clean and wax the floor. Then you notice the accumulation of dirt and grime in the corners and along the edges. You take a tool and remove the dirt and accumulation. You notice the nearby wood work is worn. You apply a fresh coat of polyurethane stain to it. You consider a new floor in itself, something tile perhaps warmed from below... etc.

Apply a layer of excellence to your project. Then go back and apply another, and then another... Use your imagination and your creativity! Consider what would be good, then demand the excellent! Like waving a magic wand... Work your magic in Excellent Layers. First one layer, then another, then another! Imagine yourself standing there upon a simple Earth, with the power just discovered within you, waving your arms and performing magical deeds! There is an art and magic to imagination, determination, and dedication. One layer by itself something excellent, but multiple layers, just EXTRAORDINARY! Find yourself exhausted in the attempt, but smiling from your good work! Something excellent in the world!



J. EXCELLENTWAY COMMENT: "Excellence Demands Courage, Denys The Timid!"

Voltaire said something like, "Better Is The Enemy Of Good" If you are trying to do something more excellent, the current good and good enough will fight to be changed. Others will attempt to keep the same and the mediocre in existence and fight you and your efforts. Be Courageous! Excellence favors the bold and the daring! Plan carefully, and examine all detail, but then stand firm with what you know and believe! The timid own the past, but the courageous own the future! Listen to your instincts! Ignore those of small and petty nature, that deny the importance or possibility of the dream! Own the world around you and make it something better, despite others, despite all obstacles! Be strong, wise, and loving in your efforts but persistent and without equal in your attempts. Let the others be timid, afraid of error and ridicule, while you stand there smiling with confidence!



K. EXCELLENTWAY COMMENT: "Excellenct Outcomes Favor The Prepared!"

Create stockpiles of water, food, and emergency equipment, before any possible natural or man-made disaster. Be ready in advance to help determine a more excellent outcome. When major events occur, you are on your own, most of the time. If some event happened tomorrow, and you were on your own, would you be strong and confident in your actions, or pitiful and waiting in despair? Be ready for all kinds of weather and predictable troubles, and find yourself more at peace and confident in your future.



L. EXCELLENTWAY COMMENT: "Deny The Obvious..."

Sure, it seems impossible, or would cost too much, would take too long, and they won't let you build it! Ha! Ha! Ha! Just keep trying! You must look back from where you envision your excellent item, method, or option, and then once there gazing at something beautiful, ignore all the dirt, dust, and sweat, it will take to get there... Defy And Deny The Impossible! D And D! Impossible is just an opinion! Move yourself each day, just a little closer to your vision! One single thought can change the world! Look sadly at those around you who refuse to dream and imagine, and insist that you join them in their sad and ugly world. Make something beautiful happen and they will be the first who praise you afterwards. As you walk the world, you swing wildly away from your critics, and as your cape brushes against their faces, you smile again knowing better. Not once, but then once again, and once again more, proving the excellence of something to others must be done by action and example, not with mere words. Claim your dream by dedicated effort, persistence, and the magic and hope within you! Have an excellent time!



M. EXCELLENTWAY COMMENT: "Getting Up To Speed, And Beyond!"

So, if you can consider your life, it being half full with some kind of history, and half empty with some kind of future.

How much time and energy, life passion, do you apply day to day? Where does it go every day?

Most of us seem to spend at least 12 hours each day, just getting to the next possible day, sleeping, eating, having some kind of shelter, etc... Then many of us spend at least an additional 10 hours trading and bartering with work and money to acquire the next 12 hours of eating, sleeping and having a safe and positive place to do so.

So we have about 2 hours a day for other projects. However, everything is really a project, and many of the same types of projects are repeated over and over for a lifetime, such as those that take up about 22 hours of each of our Earth days.

However, we can be more efficient with the hours we have.

First: Spend as much time and effort as necessary to set up Lifetime Systems, which when incorporated into your life, increase your life awareness and efficiency. This may take years to accomplish, or with some help, possibly a matter of days. We are not talking about being the Flash, and moving faster than others, although appropriate on occasion. It is more like removing ideas and methods that slow your life by attempting to replace them with excellent thoughts and considerations that increase your potential and the width and breadth of your very existence. Seeing not just that before you, but also lifting your head, and seeing beyond. Instead of just simply gazing at things, and watching others and the world move past you, engage with and own the world before you and around you. Move with the world, and adopt a a positive forward philosophy, an Excellentway Life Method.

Second: Getting up to speed. It is not just arranging each and every item in your world for its best use and optimum effect, employing such Lifetime Systems. It is also about turning up the speed, adding the power when the road is open and clear ahead, calling to you. When your systems are in place and projects set up, apply a greater intensity, engage the warp drive, amp it up!

Third: And beyond! It is a natural progression of the human to adopt greater and greater obstacles and attempt to conquer them. Take great leaps! Let the slow thinkers and negative ones keep on talking. Listen politely and with respect. Then slowly move away, ignoring their negative criticism and their very words. Turn and apply all of your power and forces to your dreams and goals, ignoring the impossible truth, creating your own valid reality!



N. EXCELLENTWAY COMMENT: "Line them up, knock them out!"

We are just human. Not an excuse for mean or evil of course... But not every day is full of energy, confidence and ambition. Some days are just hard to get up to freeway speed. No matter how many thousands of projects before you, however, they can can be efficiently served. Work something somehow on a project, move it forward in some manner, address it like a page in a book. Read something into it, do something about it, if only a thought or inclination, but interact with it in some manner.

Line things up. Put the pieces together in one place, whether thoughts or physical items. Ready the next step. You don't necessarily have to take every step of every project when it is before you. Like a stairway. Lay the steps before you, but then consider and decide your movements... Up the stairs, taking the stairs to the left, to the right, down the other stairs, across from you... Shades of Harry Potter. Line things up and ready the next step, build the stair waiting for your return to it.

Then Knock them out. Those days when you have more energy than the others, when the sun is out and shining on you, or when the moon is full... Knock down the domino's you have set up. Put the pieces together, take the next step, quickly look to the next stair and take that one, and so on...

There are days to work quietly, deliberately, full of thought and many small actions, setting things up.

Then there are days to take that step just newly built there before you. Stand upon it and test it to its limit. Then quickly take that other step on the other stairway, that other project waiting to be tried, then another, and another... Put your faith in that which you have assembled.

Blaze ahead through the night! Feel that spray of water on your face from the waterfall! Swinging through the jungle from vine to vine, screaming at the wind, and conquering time and space. The world just a blur of action, hope, and confidence!



O. EXCELLENTWAY COMMENT: "What stops you..."

When you imagine the world as you would have it. When you have an idea of what should be there in the world... Then it vanishes, and you move on to something else. Then back again sometime later, thinking the same thing...

Start to trail it back. One detail back. Have the finished thing there before you, then go back one detail. What was just before it, make a note. Then go back another detail, make a note. Keep going until you get to where you are now. Sitting there working dream back to reality. Then see how it is not as difficult as it feels. That not being able to connect all the dots now, keeps you from trying. Connect the dots back from what you dream. Then you can more easily connect them forward.

Imagine, Dream, Do.

Nothing else.
