I’m taking a firm stance this week and asking you to STOP BEING NICE. Instead let’s be EXCELLENT.
What’s the difference between nice and excellent? And why am I getting on my donkey about this?
Nice is ok, it’s pleasant, will get you so far, but it’s pretty average right? Vanilla, beige, doesn’t turn heads and make you stand out from the crowd. I’d much rather be hokey pokey with macadamia praline and chocolate sprinkles. Now that sounds excellent, thank you.
The most successful people and organisations will tell you that nice is not enough. A commitment and relentless drive for excellence is the only way to have an impact.
I unravel this further in this video, where I share my thoughts on how being excellent can drive success.
Whether you’re a large organisation working for social impact or an individual change maker, please let go of the nice and evolve into excellence. It’s actually quite liberating.
I’d love to hear your thoughts (and favourite ice cream flavour), get in touch.
