Let me make an observation. Excellence isn’t something that most of us strive for. It seems that good enough is close enough. Perfunctory is too often the norm. It infects our work culture, our politics, our interpersonal relations, and our communities.
We expect excellence from everybody else though, don’t we?
What if we chose to pursue excellence in our own lives? Would it make a difference?
My mother used to say, “anything worth doing, is worth doing well.” I think she was talking about excellence.
I’m working towards excellent today. How about you?
