I love this concept of excellence as outstanding fitness for purpose. It’s impossible to pursue excellence if you don’t clearly understand and embrace your purpose. If you fail to understand why what you do matters, you’ll never care about performing with excellence.
Fitness cannot be achieved through wishful thinking. Fitness for purpose is activity based and emanates from a conscience choice among real alternatives. Excellence will remain elusive if you don’t practice effective activity. If you find yourself in the right place, at the right time, with the right value, then be ready to assume responsibility for making the right choice and executing with flexibly resolute distinction.
There is nothing outstanding about choosing to do what everyone else is doing. Purposeful performers give themselves permission to believe they are capable of initiative. They shun comparing themselves to others; instead, they seize every opportunity to force others to copy what they are doing.
