"All humans seek the illusive touch of another's Soul, which opens us to the sense of belonging to something bigger than the self. Dr. Kortsch has given us the true "tao" of relationship in this brilliant exploration of emotional tapestry. We will be grateful for this illumination of spiritual partnership for generations to come." Chris Griscom, Spiritual Leader, Author

"Eloquent and comprehensive, showing how your primary love relationship may be a sacred vessel that transports you and your partner to a place of mutual healing and expansion." Robert Schwartz, Author: Your Soul's Gift: The Healing Power of the Life You Planned Before You Were Born

"The Tao of Spiritual Partnership is a unique blend of wit and wisdom; Dr. Kortsch encourages us to take responsibility for our relationships, while recognizing and seizing the opportunities for our own personal spiritual growth." William Buhlman, Author of Adventures Beyond the Body

Deciding to Do Exceptional Work

You probably think the title of this post sounds like your mother ... maybe that's true. But here's the point: if you consistently decided to do exceptional work, no matter what you are doing, what difference would it make to your life?

Washing dishes? Do it in an exceptional way ... doesn't take longer, but looks better and above all, makes you feel better about yourself.

Writing an essay or a thesis? Do it in an exceptional way ... this one may take longer, but not only will you feel better about yourself, you might get a much better grade, or even find that the exceptional paper has moved you from one square on the chessboard to a much more advantageous one.

Taking a walk with your 6-year-old? Do it in an exceptional way ... this one may or may not take longer, but here again you will not only feel better about yourself, but you are creating memories for that child of yours that may never fade through all the years of his/her life, memories that may be recounted to your future grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Just three little examples. Where has each of them taken you, as opposed to where you would have gone had you not done the activity in an exceptional way? It has taken you into the present moment because you have been paying acute attention to all that you were doing during the undertaking of said activity. That is precisely one of the biggest ways of deciding to do something in an exceptional way. BEING PRESENT. You can give your 'all' when you are being present. You certainly can not do that when you are not totally present, and hence it is almost impossible to do something in an exceptional way when you are not present.

It was Robin Sharma who wrote: You can do exceptional work or you can make excuses. but you can't do both.
