“The quality of a person’s life is in direct proportion to their commitment to excellence, regardless of their chosen field of endeavor.”


~Vince Lombardi



In my journey to understand the success factors for a quality life, I have seen one potent combination that more than any other seems to deliver joy, happiness, and ongoing achievement:  Commitment to excellence, tied to a clear target.  The target or targets for that commitment can be precise, or can evolve, or can change completely.  The point is to possess an attitude of excellence for whatever you have chosen for your short, medium and long term goals and aspirations.  Therefore, the combination of clarity of purpose and the quest for excellence is powerful indeed.  Neither delivers independently.  You must have both.
