"Don't Sweat the Small Stuff" by Richard Carlson

Look for the extraordinary in the Ordinary

"I heard a story about two workers who were approached by a reporter. the reporter asked the first worker, "What are you doing?" His response was to complain that e was virtually a slave, and underpaid bricklayer who spent his days wasting his time, placing bricks on top of one another".

"The reporter asked the second worker the same question. His response, however, was quite different. "I'm the luckiest person in the world", he said. "i get to be part of something important and beautiful pieces of architecture. I help turn simple pieces of brick into exquisite masterpieces".

"They were both right".

"The truth is, we see in life what we want to see. If you search for ugliness you'll find plenty of it. If you want to find fault with other people, your career, or the world in general, you'll certainly be able to do so. But the opposite is also true. If you look for the extraordinary in the ordinary, you can train yourself to see it".
