Excellence

Posted: May 26, 2011 in Uncategorized

What can you say about this month’s topic: Excellence? It is something that can be achieved although I feel it is something that is ongoing. You are always working towards excellence. To never be satisfied with where you are at but to work towards something that is greater. Also the standards for excellence is always evolving. Excellence cannot be what you set as a benchmark but what your peers set. To achieve excellence is never being satisfied but continually working to improve. It is like a mountain you are climbing but never reaching the summit. To break down the word it has excel which is a motion verb. Constant motion for improvement. Excellence is like going above what others have set as a benchmark.

Soon as you think you have reached excellence the bar will be raised to that new goal. It is always about going above what is standard. Excellence is not ever what you think it is but what others judge you at.  Excellence is attained by being extra ordinary. Never being satisfied with the norm.

“Excellence is the unlimited ability to improve the quality of what you have to offer.”
Rick Pitino

Excellence is doing ordinary things extraordinarily well.
John W. Gardner
