Small Steps

small steps

We often see success and excellence post-facto, and it appears the sheer magnitude of what has been achieved seems impossible to replicate. What is not appreciated is that it was not any one major accomplishment, but a series of small steps taken consistently and persistently over a period of time that added up to something great.

Commitment to Excellence

The only way to achieve excellence and be amongst the best-of-the-best, is to be absolutely committed to excellence. Achieving excellence, requires a willingness to put in the countless hours, make numerous small improvements and to never settle for anything that is ‘good enough’. This is only possible for those that are truly committed.

Failure & Uncertainty
