Pursuit of Excellence

Taken from the Aug 10 New York Times The Boss column , Alex Kummant says,

Part of life in heavy industry involves a certain dogged persistence in pursuing incremental improvements. I contrast that with the Silicon Valley executives who say you need to have big goals and challenge the organization. I don’t disagree with that, but when you grow up in manufacturing or transportation, the incremental improvements you make every day are what create robust change in the end.

I love this, captured here is the essence of excellence. Not just in business, but in everything we do, should be to continuously seek improvements. Why be mediocre? Hard work and discipline. Just do it.
