Excellence is never an accident. It is achieved in an organization or institution only as a result of an unrelenting and vigorous insistence on the highest standards of performance. It requires an unswerving expectancy of quality from the staff and volunteers.
Excellence is contagious. It infects and affects everyone in the organization. It charts the direction of a program. It establishes the criteria for planning. It provides zest and vitality to the organization. Once achieved, excellence has a talent for permeating every aspect of the life of the organization.
When it comes to achieving your goals and/or growing your business, who do you count on for support?
I hope you have a supportive spouse and family. I hope your friends encourage you to go for your highest and best. Unfortunately, many people don’t have that kind of support. And even those who do, recognize that their loved ones have their own things to deal with and simply can’t always be there for them.
In your quest for success, it’s a good idea to take a close look at your support system—the tools, resources, environment and the people who are in your corner. Who can you really count on? Are they there only for the good times or are they there through the thick and the thin? The more you can shore up your support team, the easier it’s going to be to achieve your important goals.
No, it’s not a typo. I didn’t mean New Normal, I meant No Normal.
If you’re waiting for things to get back to normal, you’re likely to be disappointed. I personally don’t think the world, our country or the economy will ever become normal again. Change has always been the only constant, but now change is happening more rapidly, and the results are becoming evident much faster.
Things that happen in other parts of the world have a much quicker effect on us than they ever did. Change is happening faster and the rate of change is accelerating.
