Fourth Week of May-Pursuit Of Excellence

Recently, I saw the following quote in the sports page of the LA Times discussing Daniel Guerrero UCLA Athletic Director : “If you coach for Guerrero, statistics won’t save you. Cheers won’t help you.┬áIt’s all about fitting into his carefully constructed culture of competitiveness. Do you play hard? Do you play smart? Do you play clean? Do you play to the end?”

This quote demonstrates why the means is what matters and the end takes care of itself. Each moment if we dedicate all of our energy to our present endeavor, mentally focused on our task, taking no shortcuts, and continuing to completion, we pursue excellence.

The end we do not control. The means we do control.
