Some Thoughts about Excellence
I want excellence in a surgeon and a tailor. I want excellence in the president of the United States, although I've yet to get it.
For many other things, pretty darned good will do. Would you really want a perfect spouse or a flawless friend?
If excellence means there is very little or no room for improvement, would those of us who are inclined to fix things want to work in a place where everything is excellent and guaranteed to stay that way? Would we really want a car that is so good it need never be replaced?
Lawyers have plenty of clients who do not want justice. Consultants have clients who do not want excellence. Achieving excellence is usually very demanding. Sacrifice and exertion are required. Many would like to be helicoptered to the end of that trail, but they certainly wouldn't volunteer for the hike. They like excellence in theory but its practice is sort of scary.
Never forget that.
In heaven, angels must be given special challenges or else it would turn into hell.
