Excellence is giving our very best to any task we do
and any relationship we have. Within us are many
possibilities. Excellence hones our talents and turns
them into gifts for the world.  Excellence requires us
to practice humility by learning from mistakes.
Each time we do something, we seek to improve it,
to keep raising the bar. Excellence is effort guided
by a noble purpose. It is ongoing mastery. It flows
when we are doing what we love. The perfection of
a seed is the fruit that grows from it. Excellence in 
our lives brings our gifts to fruition.
