Going From Good to Great
Inspired by two awesome posts – one by Jonathan Fields and one by Seth Godin – I’ve had yet another epiphany. At its core, it’s this: always be willing to go the extra mile, to do what others might deem ‘unreasonable’, to do the right thing. Why? Because, my friends, that’s just what you do. Doing what’s right and spending the extra energy to make sure it gets done should be a part of you, something that’s just part of your identity. It should be automatic. Now – getting to that point isn’t easy. In fact, it’s incredibly difficult, since you’ll be fighting the temptation to give in and only give what’s deemed “good enough”. But you have to tell yourself that being “good enough” just isn’t good enough anymore. Being you – a person of power, respect, love, creativity, and integrity – demands more. It demands a higher standard – not perfection, but the willingness to go above and beyond what others expect of you to produce something excellent.
