Thoughts on Excellence – March 11, 2010

“The quality of a person’s life is in direct proportion to their commitment to excellence, regardless of their chosen field of endeavor.” – Vince Lombardi

“People who have accomplished worthwhile work have had a very high sense of the way to do things. They have not been content with mediocrity. They have not confined themselves to the beaten tracks; they have never been satisfied to do things just as others do them, but always a little better. They always pushed things that came to their hands a little higher up, a little farther on. It is this quality of life’s work. It is the constant effort to be fist-class in everything one attempts that conquers the heights of excellence.” – Orison Sweet Marden


“The kind of people I look for to fill top management spots are the eager beavers, the mavericks. These are the guys who try to do more than they’re expected to do — they always reach.” – Lee Iacocca
