In one of the best-selling business books of all time,  Jim Collins’ “Good To Great“, a common trait of companies that made the leap from Good to Great is that they relentlessly pursued excellence, not settling for good – the status quo.  A key  to those “great” companies becoming that way was, in the words of Jim Collins,  they understood and operated by the principle that “Good is the Enemy of Great”. 

Here’s 1 minute of Jim Collins on the topic:

In Stephen R. Covey’s “The 8th Habit: From Effectiveness to Greatness“, the follow-up of one of the most successful self-help books of all-time, “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People“, Covey wrote:

“Everyone chooses one of two roads in life – the old and the young, the rich and the poor, men and women alike. One is the broad, well-traveled road to mediocrity, the other the road to greatness and meaning. The range of possibilities that exists within each of these two destinations is as wide as the diversity of gifts and personalities in the human family. But the contrast between the two destinations is as the night is to the day.”

As 80% of businesses and their employees are not performing at the level of the top 20%, I see this “well-traveled road to mediocrity” often and the less traveled road to greatness is, in a nutshell, the purpose and path of my Pinnacle Performance Training.

Of course, there’s much more to achieving true greatness then merely wanting to be the best. It takes focus, discipline, determination to succeed, proper behaviors, consistent execution and, above all, PRIDE.

One thing is certain, if good enough is good enough for you then you’ll never achieve greatness!

If Good Enough Is Good Enough For You Then You'll Never Achieve Greatness TH1
