Be Excellent at Everything You Do!

Hi everyone, Tod Novak here, I have a thought for you this week.  I run a group called the Elite Sales Group for sales professionals and solo entrepreneurs, people that want some extra support regarding sales and really want to craft on becoming the best salesperson.
Excellence. Now a lot of you hear the word excellence, and I wonder, do you think it’s achievable?  Some people don’t know if they could be excellent at anything.

The Webster Dictionary definition of excellence:  The quality of being outstanding or extremely good.

I think we can all be outstanding or extremely good and that’s really the definition of excellence. I think we can be extremely good at everything we do.

My wife tends to do most of the cooking only because she prefers to. I am a gourmet cook and like to cook, but my wife claims that I make too much of a mess when I cook.She loves it when I clean up and I probably should help her clean up more often, but the other day I was washing the pots and pans and you know, I noticed that I was cleaning them kind of fast and then I noticed that they needed a little extra scrubbing, so I used some stainless steel cleaner and put a little elbow grease into it and I got them super shiny, you know where you can see your reflection on both sides of the pan. And what was interesting, while I was scrubbing I was thinking you know why not be excellent at everything you do.

So even when you wash pots and pans be excellent at it because excellence is really a behavior.Booker T. Washington says, “Excellence is to do a common thing in an uncommon way”. 

One of Vince Lombardi quotes. “Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection we can catch excellence”. 

I love that, you know, we’re not going to attain perfection, but if we chase after perfection, we can catch excellence.

I hope that you’re going to catch excellence today. Be excellent with your selling skills, be excellent communicating, be excellent in everything you do and you will truly become more successful.
