“We are going to relentlessly pursue perfection knowing full well it is unobtainable, because in that relentless pursuit of perfection, we will achieve excellence.”
I have long admired and tried to emulate people who are positive, inspirational and always seem to drive toward seemingly unattainable goals. It is this combination of positivity and relentless drive to achieve the unachievable that I find so attractive. You just can’t help believing in the mission and wanting to be a part of achieving their inspirational goal – even if it appears crazy. By creating this environment, they almost always achieve more than if their goal was “realistic”.
There is the flip side: the negative or nasty person who also is trying to push for the impossible – but since their approach is mean-spirited, they become repulsive and only lead by fear or intimidation. They may achieve a few wins, but in the long term they lose.
Choose to be the positive person who creates the environment to achieve great things together – even the “impossible”!
