The Land of Excellence

Just ran across this quote from Robert Quinn’s book “Deep Change: Discovering the Leader Within.” Love it

Most of us seek quantum leaps in our performance levels by pursuing a strategy
of incremental investment. This strategy simply does not work. The land of
excellence is safely guarded from unworthy intruders. At the gates stand two
fearsome sentries – risk and learning. The keys to entry are faith and courage.

Are you pursuing excellence or mediocrity in your personal and professional life? You don’t need to stand with your toes on the edge of the precipice to learn and grow, but you need to be close enough to feel the breeze on your face.
