Stop Shooting for Excellence

Excellence is not a goal.  It is an approach.  Indeed, Excellence is a virtue; an approach to living and working.  We give our best and approach our best as life long learners… striving for possibilities and mastery.  We give our work and life our love.  This is Excellence.  The goal of excellence is but a myth.  If we approach our lives with this strength of character, others may and will describe our efforts and outcomes as excellent; showing Excellence.

But excellence is not a goal.  It is a journey, an approach…  a true strength of character at school and work, in business, in community and throughout life.  It does imply that we focus our efforts around that which we most want to apply Excellence.  We can give our best to everything we do.  We can give our true best to that which we most love.

Hear Dave Grohl on his take around Excellence.  Upon first seeing this, I wrote, “Passion, drive, focus and excellence. .. powerful and real message for musicians, speakers and anyone trying to find the “secret” to success. It never was a secret. Be great at what you do and see who shows up. Excellence at what you do and for whom you do it matters.”  I also wrote, “Do not confuse popularity with purpose.”  Purposefulness drives Excellence.

Excellence is a Virtue; and it does matter.  To what will you bring excellence?

Peace, passion and prosperity.
