...think "remarkable" instead.
Excellence is subjective and overwhelming.
Remarkable is doable: a small tweak and improvement to the "normal" that surprises people.
The pursuit of excellence feels like a never-ending journey.
How do we know we've arrived?
The pursuit of remarkable is done in incremental steps.
Success (and failure) is easily measured.
Each failed step teaches.
Each successful step builds momentum and creates a new (and better) normal.
You can pursue excellence and never be remarkable.
A steady pursuit of the right kind of remarkable will always equal excellence.
