On Toscanini's eightieth birthday, someone asked his son, Walter, what his father considered his most important achievement. The reply was, "For him there can be no such thing. Whatever he happens to be doing at the moment is the biggest thing in his life -- whether it is conducting a symphony or peeling an orange."
To Practice This Thought:
Stop whatever you are doing and remember that it is the biggest thing in your life. Then return to it.
