139 – How to be Managed – Part 2 – Stop Dreaming of Excellence

Do you think of excellence as a noun, something that can be pursued and earned through enough effort, or as a verb, something you practice and strive for every day? I’d argue it’s the latter; an orientation to life rather than an achievement.


But our society isn’t conditioned to practice excellence – we’re watchers and dreamers, and for the most part, people are content with simply dreaming about and spectating excellence. But I don’t want to just dream of excellence, and I don’t want you to either.


I also don’t want you to walk the road of excellence alone. As we discussed in the last episode, good managers facilitate change – so in the practice of excellence, we have to learn how to be managed.
