" It takes less time to do a thing right than it does to explain why you did it wrong."
Henry Wadswoth Longfellow
How do you approach your daily activities? Do you strive to give your very best effort day in and day out or do you sometimes do just barely enough to skate by? Do you attempt to put everything youve got into everything you do, autographing your work with excellence or do occasionally just go through the motions?
Doing your best and being your best is what excellence in every day living is all about. While consistently putting forth a maximal effort is not always easy, youll find that its the only kind of effort the real winners know. Doing less than their best would be unthinkable to these prime time performers. Win or lose, youll always get their very best effort. Always.
"What is easy is seldom excellent."
Being good every once in a while is relatively easy. After all, anyone can be good every so often. But youre not just anybody, so every so often just isnt going to cut it. Staying at the top of your game requires a full time commitment to excellence in everything you say, think and do.
Youll never know how good you can become if you never have the gumption to lay it all on the line. Demanding the best youve got and then demanding a little more is the only way to see how high you can fly. By pushing yourself higher, youll soar to heights youve never dreamed possible.
By stretching as far as you can and then stretching a little higher, youll reach goals that were heretofore unattainable. Youll find that your best is plenty good enough when you have the courage to give life your very best shot and then give a little more.
"We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit."
Lord Chesterfield said, "Whatever is worth doing at all is worth doing well." John W. Gardner echoed those sentiments when he said, "Excellence is doing ordinary things extraordinarily well." Their messages are simple: If somethings worth doing, then its worth doing it the very best you can.
Whatever you do in life, be sure its something that ignites the passion within. After all, when you are doing something that inspires you and drives you to action, you feel compelled to do it as well as you can. When you start following your heart, nothing less than your very best will ever do.
The Bottom Line: Place your stamp of approval on everything you do by autographing your work with excellence.
