Pursue Excellence...Be a Michelangelo
I knew he painted and was a sculptor but I did not know that he was an architect as well. Whatever he put his hand to...he did it excellently. Hundred of years later and we are still celebrating his work. Will you have a "masterpiece life" like Michelangelo?
Now don't feel pressure to perform. I am not talking about competing for the world's attention as the "best ______ " in the world. What I am talking about is an attitude...a paradigm...a way of seeing your destiny in this world as being one of significance.
What would it take to create a masterpiece? Just ask Michelangelo.
"Time, Patience and the Drive for Excellence"
You can do it. You can create a masterpiece life by making a decision to do your personal best at whatever you put your hand to. It is always a decision. Today a young man asked me to critique his resume. Upon observation, it was obvious that is was just thrown together. I took him aside and challenged him to take some extra time and re-format the document so it would better present the information. It is your life...how do you want people to see you...as average or worse...mediocre...or do you want others to see you as excellent?
Make a commitment to pursue excellence and declare your war against being average. As usual....the decision is yours. When life is all over...you will have no on else to blame when you review your life of 80 years.
Declare War on Mediocrity.
