Excellence is a daily endeavor

What can you do today, that will make the most difference tomorrow? What can you do today, that will improve your performance over yesterday?

What can you do today, that will have the biggest positive impact, on the most people? What can you do today, that is above and beyond what’s expected of you?

What can you do today, that will help you grow? What new things can you learn? What can you do, to apply the lessons you’ve already learned?

Excellence comes not from platitudes and good intentions, but rather from days and moments lived with the sincere and committed effort to be your best.

— Ralph Marston
