So we have been talking, and I wrote a post this morning, about where to take our blog. It occurred to me that we should be aware of fundamentals of excellence in whatever we do. Last summer (2006) I attended the National Rural Institute on Alcohol and Drug Abuse at the University of Wisconsin at Minomonie. I picked up some literature there.
Four things to think about in achieving excellence:
Care more than others think is wise.
Risk more than others think is safe.
Dream more than others think is practical.
Expect more than others think is possible.
I will follow and close with a comment from Vincent T. Lombardi, the famous coach of the championship Green Bay Packers.
“The quality of a person’s life is in direct proportion to their commitment to excellence, regardless of their chosen field of endeavor.”
Son – whatever we do, let us strive for excellence. The blogosphere is a new frontier, we must sometimes forge our own trails, hack through the forest, and sometimes we will sleep in the rain.
If you want to be successful, it’s just this simple. Know what you are doing. Love what you are doing. And believe in what you are doing. Will Rogers
