“Do you see a man skilled in his work? He will stand before kings;
He will not stand before obscure men.”
Proverbs 22:29 NASB
Excellence is really about perspective. So often we focus only on the big picture thus forgetting all of the little things. It takes the details to achieve the big picture. Focus your attention on excelling in the details and you will succeed in the big things. It’s been said, “Success in life is founded upon attention to the small things rather than to the large things; to everyday things nearest to us rather than to the things that are remote and uncommon.” John Maxwell says, “Excellence is the gap between average and exceptional.”And he further says, “By cultivating a culture of excellence, a business attracts customers and wins their loyalty.”
Starting today, I will take one day at a time and focus my attention on the little things, the details.
