I was thinking recently about goals and things I’m pursuing and some thoughts that some others have shared with me and how my thinking had changed them. They said after working with me, there’s no more average, there’s only excellence. Wow!
And I paused and said, to myself, “well, of course! I mean, how ELSE could it be? It can’t be anything BUT that. Average just isn’t good enough for me.”
I have always been a perfectionist. That has it’s plusses and minuses to say the least, but one thing it has taught me is to always strive and reach for better. To do better, to be better, to not be average, to go above and beyond if I can. In anything that I really do, or at least anything that matters at all to me. Really, it’s separating yourself and setting yourself apart from the rest. Why settle for mediocrity?
Keeping things simple with this thought, I want to share this video with you that I’ve shared a similar version in the past. It’s always a good reminder. How the littlest bit of effort we put into something can have such a huge impact on what we’re doing. It could be in your job, as a parent, with your personal goals, just the slightest bit more effort you put into it can be so huge.
After all, do you want to be just average?
