Vince Lombardi said, “Perfection is not attainable. But if we chase perfection, we can catch excellence.”
Aristotle said, “Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.”
Abraham Lincoln said, “Whatever you are, be a good one.”
Can we all attain excellence, or is it reserved for the select few?
I believe excellence is already inside of all of us.
But what does excellence mean to you?
I’ll tell you what it means to the Greeks – Dia Phoron.
I love it.
Because literally translated, it means “follow through.”
Finish what you start.
Do what you say you’re going to do.
And be excellent.
