What aprofound idea!Embrace this reality, mediocrity is a choice; it’s not always made consciously, but it is still achoice. You commit career malpractice every time you do things in a mediocre manner; everytime you show up late for a meeting; every time you are unprepared, every time you do lessthan your best.There is no inherent value in mediocrity, so there is no reason for people to stop and payattention to you or your work. Choose to never compromise your talent, quality and highstandards; and you will never choose mediocrity.Being the best has nothing to do with size, education, or bloodline; it has everything to do withdecision, commitment, action, and persistence.Excellence is a habit; a momentary happening; a crossroad where the body, mind and spirit allwork together. Professional athletes call it being in “the zone” when their athletic prowess,experience and talent peak. Everyone has this potential to achieve excellence—even you!
