The idea of “good enough” pervades our society. Unfortunately for us and our world, “good enough” has come to mean a whole lot less than excellence.
Schools are teaching to the lowest common denominator.
We keep re-electing politicians despite ridiculously low approval ratings.
We praise simple relief work and the “something is better than nothing” approach to fighting extreme poverty and the global orphan crisis.
We have come to accept mediocrity and average as the goal.
We can never accept that as the goal. In everything we do, we have to demand excellence – real excellence – from ourselves, our leaders, and those who we influence.
What are you doing today to pursue excellence?
