Marden, Orison Swett

If you want to achieve excellence, you can get there today. As of this second, quit doing less-than-excellent work.
Watson, Thomas J.

Marden, Orison Swett

Gardner, John W.
The master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his information and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence at whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he's always doing both.
Michener, James A.
It is those who have this imperative demand for the best in their natures, and who will accept nothing short of it, that holds the banners of progress, that set the standards, the ideals, for others.
Marden, Orison Swett

The principle is competing against yourself. It's about self improvement, about being better than you were the day before.
Strive for excellence, not perfection.
H. Jackson Brown Jr.
People who produce good results feel good about themselves.
If you aren't playing well, the game isn't as much fun. When that happens I tell myself just to go out and play as I did when I was a kid.
Watson, Thomas J.
To do great things is difficult, but to command great things is more difficult.
Do more than you're supposed to do and you can have or be or do anything you want.
Excellence is to do a common thing in an uncommon way.
Washington, Booker T.
It is the mark of an instructed mind to rest satisfied with the degree of precision which the nature of the subject admits and not to seek exactness when only an approximation of the truth is possible.
You must be resolutely determined that whatever you do shall always be the best of which you are capable.
Popplestone, Charles E.
The renown which riches or beauty confer is fleeting and frail; mental excellence is a splendid and lasting possession.

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.
Set exorbitant standards, and give your people hell when they don't live up to them. There is nothing so demoralizing as a boss who tolerates second rate work.
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.
I always remember an epitaph which is in the cemetery at Tombstone, Arizona. It says: Here lies Jack Williams. He done his damnedest. I think that is the greatest epitaph a man can have.

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.
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.
One of the great undiscovered joys of life comes from doing everything one attempts to the best of one's ability. There is a special sense of satisfaction, a pride in surveying such a work, a work which is rounded, full, exact, complete in its parts, which the superficial person who leaves his or her work in a slovenly, slipshod, half-finished condition, can never know. It is this conscientious completeness which turns any work into art. The smallest task, well done, becomes a miracle of achievement.
I never had a policy; I have just tried to do my very best each and every day.
You can start right where you stand and apply the habit of going the extra mile by rendering more service and better service than you are now being paid for.

There is none who cannot teach somebody something, and there is none so excellent but he is excelled.
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.

Resolve to make each day the very best and don't let anyone get in your way. If they do, step on them.
Four short words sum up what has lifted most successful individuals above the crowd: a little bit more. They did all that was expected of them and a little bit more.
Vickery, A. Lou
Become all that you are capable of becoming!
Mckain, Robert J.
You have to learn the rules of the game. And then you have to play better than anyone else.
It takes a long time to bring excellence to maturity.
It isn't what you do, but how you do it.
To aim at excellence, our reputation, and friends, and all must be ventured; to aim at the average we run no risk and provide little service.
The uncommon man is merely the common man thinking and dreaming of success in larger terms and in more fruitful areas.
If we want to make something really superb on this planet, there is nothing whatever that can stop us.
