08 Nov Excellence in Everything We Do.
I have been blessed to work with more than my fair share of excellent companies.
Some state their excellence with clarity in their values; others use it as a mantra for their daily efforts. However, the truth of it is, none are excellent by merely stating it.
Excellence begins with a state of mind but proves itself in constant effort.
This effort plays itself out in many ways. Excellent companies tend to attract excellent employees, who reap excellent clients and customers which leads to excellent profits and create an excellent life.
Put simply: Being good pays off.
The act of working with terrific companies means that we are constantly learning from them. Some clients actively share and support our efforts by providing resources and examples of ways to better do business. Just as importantly, other clients are simply great at what they do and provide inspiration and insight in to the unlimited number of details it takes to provide the best to their clientele.
Also, fortunate for me and Swift Media, is the fact that we have the opportunity to be a piece of that excellence. When working as a vendor for great companies, whether a global leader or local up-start, we are a piece of that puzzle. The website, the marketing, the emails or other service is an example of what these outstanding companies want to say to the world.
To truly succeed and move beyond the mundane, you must embrace excellence for excellence’s sake. The journey should be reward enough.
However, continue to be excellent and others will talk, making you remarkable (as Seth Godin puts it -worth remarking about). More reward for doing what you do with people and companies that realize the value and covet the opportunity.
Being good pays off.
