Developing a Black Belt attitude: EXCELLENCE
ex·cel·lence: The quality of being outstanding or extremely good.
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.
Excellence requires your best and something extra.
Excellence is the aspiration to exceed the limitations that we put on ourselves. It is seeking to do better.
Excellence is hard to reach. Excellence is superiority and getting outstanding results in something we do. The closest we can get to excellence is practise, practise, practise.
“Be a yardstick of quality. Some people aren’t used to an environment where excellence is expected.” – Steve Jobs
