“The society that scorns excellence in plumbing because plumbing is a humble activity ad tolerates shoddiness in philosophy because it is an exalted activity will have neither good plumbing nor good philosophy. Neither its pipes nor its theories will hold water.”— John Gardner, author. Moral: in order to succeed, expect excellence. Do not settle for second best.
People do not follow uncommitted leaders. Commitment can be displayed in a full range of matters to include the work hours you choose to maintain, how you work to improve your abilities, or what you do for your fellow workers at personal sacrifice. — Stephen Gregg
