EXCELLENCE

The achievement of excellence requires great effort, much planning, and even more time. But in the long run, mediocrity costs more, drains your energy, and wastes even more time than it takes to do things right.

Norman Lamm

Strive to accomplish the very best that you are capable of. Nothing less than your best effort will suffice. You may fool others, but you can never fool yourself. Self-satisfaction will come from the knowledge that you left no stone unturned in an effort to accomplish everything possible under the circumstances.

John Wooden
