Earlier this week, I experienced some rather uninspiring attitudes on my 9-to-5. I felt as if no one wanted to put forth the effort needed to get the job done. Exasperated, I posted my sentiments to Twitter: "What ever happened to excellence??? Aren't we taught to do our very best?" The feedback assured me that there are some who feel as I do. However, it seems like "just good enough" is becoming the new standard, not just in the corporate world, but everywhere.
This may be why I have SO MUCH LOVE for Gabby Douglas! Her perseverance is an inspiration to all who’ve followed her story and history-making performance. In a word, she's awesome. At just 16, Gabby embodies the true attributes of excellence:
Let’s be like Gabby. Let’s excel in all that we do and declare that “just good enough” isn’t good enough!
Join the Love for Gabby movement and celebrate her amazing achievement. Tweet #LoveForGabby, create your own Love For Gabby post, or follow on Pinterest!
