The book ‘Good to Great’ starts by saying that the enemy of ‘great’ is ‘good’, the hardest part being the moment of transition from what we’re used to what is more beneficial. Enjoy good things but never get used to them. Excellence is progressive.
Savor every moment. Maximize every relationship. Remember however that growth is a natural order of life. If your friends are not getting better and you are, you will soon attract new friends. If you’re not getting better and they are, you will soon be left behind.
Almost everyone using the internet knows there is something called Google and I believe that a larger percentage of those people know how to use this free service. Unfortunately, ignorance is still very much prevalent. It is not because there is no knowledge to be gained, but because there is no hunger for it.
You can’t give what you don’t have. You can’t teach (or even apply) what you never learnt. Good enough is seldom good enough. Aim for Great.
