"I can't believe impossible things." said Alice.
"I daresay you haven't had much practice," said the Queen.
"When I was your age, I always did it for half-an-hour a day.
Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible
things before breakfast."
FROM EXCELLENCE
TO PASSION;
FROM PASSION
TO MEANING.
"Pleasure in the job puts perfection in the work."
Aristotle

SUCCESS
Mediocrity
"Our biggest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our biggest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?"
INVICTUS

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds and shall find me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.
Marianne Williamson
"If you are going to achieve excellence in big things, you develop the habit in little matters.
Excellence is not an exception,
it is a prevailing attitude."

Colin Powell

My Story
Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs
“The purpose of life is not to be happy –
but to matter, to be productive, to be useful,
to have it make some difference
that you lived at all.”
Leo Rosten
"To learn to succeed,
you must first learn to fail."
Michael Jordan
a state of concentration or complete absorption with the activity at hand and the situation. It is a state in which people are so involved in an activity that nothing else seems to matter.

The idea of flow is identical to the feeling of being "in the zone" or "in the groove".
FINDING FLOW - Csikszentmihalyi, 1997
"We are truly happy – and most likely to enter a state of flow – when the challenge of a particular task matches our level of skill for that task.
In Summary: What is needed is the discipline to do things, and the passion to do them well.
What is needed is the
discipline
to do things,
and the
passion
to do them well.
Reflection
The difference between Mediocrity and Excellence
is often one small piece of extra effort.
