Defining excellence

Defining excellence

While success is easy to define, as it has set metrics that are measurable, excellence is much harder to define because it is rare, difficult to scale, and ambiguous.

Just get the work done

In a constant pursuit to get work done, much of our work is focused on output and measured in terms of quantity. 

In our endeavor to maximize our output, we turn everything into a joyless activity to be finished as soon as possible. Everything seems rushed, mediocre and uninspired.

The world is success-oriented

With the whole world focused on success, instead of excellence, or happiness or personal growth, one has no choice but to strive to be successful.

Excellence is intangible

Excellence does not measure the size of your ego, your income or your fan following.

It means defining one's self-worth pursuing an activity for its own sake, deriving happiness and satisfaction from the work itself.

Deepstash helps you become inspired, wiser and productive, through bite-sized ideas from the best articles, books and videos out there.

Happiness is a key driver and a precursor of success.

IDEAS

The community we live in helps us bring balance. We don’t all grow our own food, make our own shelter, and provide our own entertainment. We have to keep three things in mind.

  1. We need respect. Some roles in life make us feel valued and worthy but give little comfort.
  2. We need comfort. Some roles yield comfort but are not respected.
  3. We need time. Some roles will give comfort and respect but little time to strive for excellence.

    When we choose our work, friends and relationships, we must consider all three.

Yoga

Like Meditation, Yoga is the one all solution to all the problems of our body. It is a holistic, and safe way to take care of your body, mind, and soul.
