For example my mom requested that I make a birthday cake for my niece. It was not what I expected because I had no idea how to make a “hamster cake” she wished for. I took the request and spent days in figuring out the material and designing the hamster. I made 4 hamsters and gave her 3. It turned out to be a great experience and big highlight in the family gathering. It was beyond her expectations and I enjoyed the making of a special cake.
I am grateful to this request and the experience.
Had I rejected or did it perfunctorily without trying my best, this experience would come back and haunt me whenever I see an animal shaped cake or anything that can remind me of this cake.
And I am grateful for this question you raised. I saw this last night before bedtime and pondered it and answered in the morning before I checked any habit. This also helped to reenforce “doing my best”. Thank you.
