Whatever you do, don't do it halfway.
Best Quotes about Excellence
Winners have the ability to step back from the canvas of their lives like an artist gaining perspective. They make their lives a work of art -- an individual masterpiece.
Don't waste your time striving for perfection, instead, strive for excellence -- doing your best.
Olivier, Sir Lawrence
I can do small things in a great way.
Clarke, James Freeman
The principle is competing against yourself. It's about self improvement, about being better than you were the day before.
There is only one thing for us to do, and that is to do our level best right where we are every day of our lives; To use our best judgment, and then to trust the rest to that Power which holds the forces of the universe in his hands.
Marden, Orison Swett
The success combination in business is: Do what you do better... and: Do more of what you do...
Schwartz, David J.
There seems to be one quality of mind which seems to be of special and extreme advantage in leading him to make discoveries. It was the power of never letting exceptions go unnoticed.
It takes a long time to bring excellence to maturity.
Excellence means when a man or woman asks of himself more than others do.
Gasset, Jose Ortega Y
If something is exceptionally well done it has embedded in it's very existence the aim of lifting the common denominator rather than catering to it.
The most splendid achievement of all is the constant striving to surpass yourself and to be worthy of your own approval.
The road to excellence is always under construction
Being forced to work, and forced to do your best, will breed in you temperance and self-control, diligence and strength of will, cheerfulness and content, and a hundred virtues which the idle will never know.
Anybody who accepts mediocrity -- in school, on the job, in life -- is a person who compromises, and when the leader compromises, the whole organization compromises.
There's a way to do better... find it.
Edison, Thomas A.
Whatever you do, don't do it halfway.
A masterpiece is something said once and for all, stated, finished, so that it's there complete in the mind, if only at the back.
I made a resolve then that I was going to amount to something if I could. And no hours, nor amount of labor, nor amount of money would deter me from giving the best that there was in me. And I have done that ever since, and I win by it. I know.
Sanders, Col. Harland
You always have to give 100 percent, because if you don't, someone, someplace, will give 100 percent and will beat you when you meet.
To do the right thing, at the right time, in the right way; to do some things better than they were ever done before; to eliminate errors; to know both sides of the question; to be courteous; to be an example; to work for the love of work; to anticipate requirements; to develop resources; to recognize no impediments; to master circumstances; to act from reason rather than rule; to be satisfied with nothing short of perfection.
Marshall Field & Company
The secret of joy in work is contained in one word - excellence. To know how to do something well is to enjoy it.
It isn't what you do, but how you do it.
I have offended God and mankind because my work didn't reach the quality it should have.
Da Vinci, Leonardo
Strive for excellence, not perfection.
H. Jackson Brown Jr.
I never had a policy; I have just tried to do my very best each and every day.
It has always been my belief that a man should do his best, regardless of how much he receives for his services, or the number of people he may be serving or the class of people served.
From time to time there appear on the face of the earth men of rare and consummate excellence, who dazzle us by their virtue, and whose outstanding qualities shed a stupendous light. Like those extraordinary stars of whose origins we are ignorant, and of whose fate, once they have vanished, we know even less, such men have neither forebears nor descendants: they are the whole of their race.
Bruyere, Jean De La
You can become an even more excellent person by constantly setting higher and higher standards for yourself and then by doing everything possible to live up to those standards.
You do not merely want to be considered just the best of the best. You want to be considered the only ones who do what you do.
To enjoy the things we ought and to hate the things we ought has the greatest bearing on excellence of character.
Do not look for approval except for the consciousness of doing your best.
Do more than you're supposed to do and you can have or be or do anything you want.
The noblest search is the search for excellence.
Johnson, Lyndon B.
Determine to become one of the best. Sufficient money will almost automatically follow if you get to be one of the best in your chosen field, whatever it is.
Mitchell, Don G.
The sad truth is that excellence makes people nervous.
You're probably not a member of a major league baseball team, your errors, unless they are truly spectacular, don't show up in the morning paper.
The idea for which this nation stands will not survive if the highest goal free man can set themselves is an amiable mediocrity. Excellence implies striving for the highest standards in every phase of life.
Gardner, John W.
There is one plain rule of life. Try thyself unweariedly till thou findest the highest thing thou art capable of doing, faculties and outward circumstances being both duly considered, and then do it.
Mill, John Stuart
Let each day be your masterpiece.
We do not do well except when we know where the best is and when we are assured that we have touched it and hold its power within us.
You have to create a track record of breaking your own mold, or at least other people's idea of that mold.
Deliver more than you are getting paid to do. The victory of success will be half won when you learn the secret of putting out more than is expected in all that you do. Make yourself so valuable in your work that eventually you will become indispensable.
It is only in your mind that you have to excel, at anything or everything. Of course, it would be very nice to excel at most things. Indeed, we recommend that you try and do your best. But realistically, you are entitled to do the bare minimum to get by. All your accomplishments are just a bonus, something to enjoy, not requirements. You don't have to do anything to prove that you are worthy of existing.
Albert Ellis, Michael Abrams, Lidia Dengelegi
If you want to achieve excellence, you can get there today. As of this second, quit doing less-than-excellent work.
Watson, Thomas J.
If you do things well, do them better. Be daring, be first, be different, be just.
It's enough for you to do it once for a few men to remember you. But if you do it year after year, then many people remember you and they tell it to their children, and their children and grandchildren remember and, if it concerns books, they can read them. And if it's good enough, it will last as long as there are human beings.
The ancient Greek definition of happiness was the full use of your powers along lines of excellence.
John F. Kennedy
With regard to excellence, it is not enough to know, but we must try to have and use it.
Badness you can get easily, in quantity; the road is smooth, and it lies close by, But in front of excellence the immortal gods have put sweat, and long and steer is the way to it.
When you say you'll meet someone at 11:00 AM, be there at 10:45. When you promise a check on the 30th, send it on the 28th. Whatever you agree to do, do it a bit more. Start with your employees, then extend it to everyone you deal with. News will soon get around that you are a person of your word.
Scott, Charles Prestwich
