STRIVING FOR EXCELLENCE
Think of yourself as on the threshold of unparalleled success. A whole, clear, glorious life lies before you. Achieve! Achieve!
- Andrew Carnegie
What is the recipe for successful achievement? To my mind there are just four essential ingredients: Choose a career you love...Give it the best there is in you... Seize your opportunities...And be a member of the team.
- Benjamin F. Fairless
Within us all there are wells of thought and dynamos of energy which are not suspected until emergencies arise. Then oftentimes we find that it is comparatively simple to double or treble our former capacities and to amaze ourselves by the results achieved. Quotas, when set up for us by others, are challenges which goad us on to surpass ourselves. The outstanding leaders of every age are those who set up their own quotas and constantly achieve them.
- Thomas J. Watson
Striving for excellence motivates you; striving for perfection is demoralizing.
- Harriet Braiker
