Achieving excellence is more a journey than a destination
In reality, excellence is aspired by everyone. It has neither frontiers nor limits. To every height attained or feat achieved, there’s always more to be done.
While on the quest for excellence, the process involves recognising that improvement is always possible. As managers/employers/employees, a good appraisal report can be used as an indication of attainment of excellence. But then, we shouldn’t settle at the shores of meagre achievements and should aspire for more.
To be excellent, a high level of commitment, self-denial and selfless contribution is required. It calls for continuous training and re-training, practice and the ability to turn failures to progressive advantage. It also requires self-motivation where necessary.
For you to aspire to be excellent, you must be inspired before you can acquire.
