Excellence - What is Excellence?

"Excellence is an act won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.” Aristotle

We are known by what we do, not what we say. When we are consistent in our actions specifically in our work ethic, people will take notice. The above quote should resonate within us if we are honest with ourselves.

"Excellence is our ever-growing personal and collective best, as an offering to God!" Excellence is more than doing a good job - it is doing a great job! It is not a destination." Excellence is about getting better, growing, improving and giving it your all everyday.

“Do your best, and be a little better than you are.” Gordon B Hinckley
“If you don’t have time to do it right, when will you have the time to do it over?” John Wooden
“Mediocrity will never do. You are capable of something better.” Gordon B Hinckley
“If I cannot do great things, I can do small things in a great way.” Martin Luther King
“Anything worth doing is worth doing right.” Hunter S Thompson 
Excellence describes the furthest end of the quality spectrum. When we think aboutexcellence, the aspect that comes to mind is outstanding - a mode of its kind - the very best there is.
