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.
Best Quotes about Excellence
Excellent firms don't believe in excellence -- only in constant improvement and constant change.
Peters, Thomas J.
Resolve to make each day the very best and don't let anyone get in your way. If they do, step on them.
You have to learn the rules of the game. And then you have to play better than anyone else.
Do a little bit more than average and from that point on our progress multiplies itself out of all proportion to the effort put in.
Meyer, Paul J.
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.
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
Always dream and shoot higher than you know you can reach. Don't bother just to be better than your contemporaries and predecessors; try to be better than yourself.
You have to create a track record of breaking your own mold, or at least other people's idea of that mold.
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 ancient Greek definition of happiness was the full use of your powers along lines of excellence.
John F. Kennedy
Do your work; not just your work and no more, but a little more for the lavishing's sake -- that little more which is worth all the rest.
It takes a long time to bring excellence to maturity.
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.
The road to excellence is always under construction
Excellence is rarely found, more rarely valued.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
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
To enjoy the things we ought and to hate the things we ought has the greatest bearing on excellence of character.
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.
People come out to see you perform and you've got to give them the best you have within you. The lives of most men are patchwork quilts. Or at best one matching outfit with a closet and laundry bag full of incongruous accumulations. A lifetime of training for just ten seconds.
It is just the little difference between the good and the best that makes the difference between the artist and the artisan. It is just the little touches after the average man would quit that makes the master's fame.
Marden, Orison Swett
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
No matter how small and unimportant what we are doing may seem, if we do it well, it may soon become the step that will lead us to better things.
The real contest is always between what you've done and what you're capable of doing. You measure yourself against yourself and nobody else.
Always strive to excel, but only on weekends.
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
People who produce good results feel good about themselves.
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.
True greatness consists in being great in little things.
One shining quality lends a luster to another, or hides some glaring defect.
I can do small things in a great way.
Clarke, James Freeman
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
The uncommon man is merely the common man thinking and dreaming of success in larger terms and in more fruitful areas.
Do a little more each day than you think you possibly can.
Excellence is to do a common thing in an uncommon way.
Washington, Booker T.
Become all that you are capable of becoming!
Mckain, Robert J.
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.
Don't waste your time striving for perfection, instead, strive for excellence -- doing your best.
Olivier, Sir Lawrence
If you'll not settle for anything less than your best, you will be amazed at what you can accomplish in your lives.
I never had a policy; I have just tried to do my very best each and every day.
There is none who cannot teach somebody something, and there is none so excellent but he is excelled.
There is no finish line.
The fact is, the difference between peak performers and everybody else are much smaller than everybody else thinks.
Garfield, Charles A.
All you owe the public is a good performance.
You must be resolutely determined that whatever you do shall always be the best of which you are capable.
Popplestone, Charles E.
If you do things well, do them better. Be daring, be first, be different, be just.
With regard to excellence, it is not enough to know, but we must try to have and use it.
If you cannot do great things, do small things in a great way.
Do not look for approval except for the consciousness of doing your best.
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.
A racehorse that consistently runs just a second faster than another horse is worth millions of dollars more. Be willing to give that extra effort that separates the winner from the one in second place.
Brown Jr., H. Jackson
