Good or Great?


“Good is the enemy of great” said Jim Collins author of Good to Great. It is easy to be good, which to me is average; it is not easy to be great. Greatness takes a deeper commitment, a narrower focus, a willingness to be uncomfortable all the time. Many are called and few are chosen. We all have the opportunity to be great, it is not about talent, it is about mindset. A growth mindset gives you the opportunity to be great. I find it especially interesting that the great ones are always looking for way to be better, to grow. The good ones are satisfied. Take a chance; be great at what you do!
