In Pursuit of Excellence

Excellence is not only about the task at hand.

  • It's about treating others well
  • It's about accepting criticism
  • It's about knowing yourself

Excellence takes commitment. I have to work to remember:

  • To trust first, question later
  • To listen with my heart as well as my ears
  • To appreciate and explore the subtle complexities of others views
  • To give my attention firmly to those who ask of it
  • To respond respectully, honestly, and directly

What values and principles guide your search for excellence?
