Today is NOT the day.
If anyone is going to do a shortcut, it won’t be me. I refuse to do my job half-way. Not today. There are all kinds of ways for things to go wrong. Let them be accidents. I will not allow myself to intentionally do less than I am capable of doing.
In the past, my mood dictated how I worked. I allowed myself to be distracted far too often by the lure of mediocrity. After all, it is easy to be mediocre. Starting today, mediocrity and I don’t see eye to eye. I have a new allergy, and it’s called “average”. And I don’t need to go to a pharmacy for the medication, because I already have it. It’s called conviction. It’s called passion. It’s called zeal. It’s called honor.
My minimum expectation will be to exceed everyone else’s expectations. In fact, my expectation will be to exceed my own expectations. Not tomorrow. But today.
My teammates and I work hard, and I respect their efforts. Together, we stand strong, and I will not be the weak link in the chain. Not today. I will not be the one who makes excuses. Not today. I will not be the one who grunts and complains. Not today. I will not be the one who burdens my team mates with undone work. Not today. I will not be the one who doesn’t follow up with customers, when I said I would. Not today.
⭐Excellence is not what I will accomplish in the future. Excellence is what I do today. I am here today, so I will love today, and I will be a blessing today, because I am alive today.
