Excellence is a habit.  We have all heard the saying, we are what we do.  Making excellence a habit is simple. The big challenge for most people is having the discipline to improve personal excellence. Start with small steps.  As you are doing a task this week, ask yourself- Is this my best? Practice Excellence, Perform Excellence!

With this week’s St Jude Kick-A-Thon, we each have a great opportunity to give.  As many of you know, St Jude has treated children from all 50 states and around the world.  We are proud to be aligned with an organization that gives help to so many children with life threatening illnesses.  It feels amazing when giving to others and not expecting anything in return.  Most of the time, we think of monetary gifts that mean the most.  I’ve found that some of the most rewarding gifts included the gift of time, love, listening, sharing, etc.  My encouragement for all  [ Read More ]

Do you remember watching Bob Ross paint beautiful pictures on PBS?  He was simply amazing.  His pleasant conversation and masterful strokes would slowly navigate us to a place he had imagined.  His strokes of precision would create beautiful landscapes that would leave us dumb founded.  He was okay with making mistakes, and would make them into something beautiful.  What steps are we making this week toward more precision in our life?  Start small.   Slow down, focus and improve.  You’ve got this.  Ready, Set, Time to Grow!

Came across a quote this morning that I absolutely love.  I’m not a golfer, but Arnold Palmer nailed it.  He said, “It’s a funny thing, the more I practice the luckier I get.” It’s so true.  A lot of times we expect to improve by slipping into auto pilot.  It never happens.  Successful people do the work that others are not willing to do.  Simply put, hard work works.  If you struggle with practicing outside of class, start with small steps.  Everyone has 5 minutes.  I know this is a message that we have all heard, but if you want  [ Read More ]
