“I would say that the quality of each man’s life is the full measure of that man’s commitment to excellence and victory – whether it be in football, whether it be business, whether it be politics or government or what you have.”

Unfortunately, not many people say things like that these days. But back in the day, they did. Those words were once spoken by legendary coach, Vince Lombardi.

My trip to Green Bay last weekend gave me

the opportunity to see that Lombardi’s commitment to excellence still lives today in the Packer organization.

Lombardi was passionate about winning. And he understood victory could only be sustained if excellence was present.

Do you think about winning in your area of leadership, or are you just going through the motions?

If you want to maximize the quality of your life as well as take your influence to the next level, I encourage you to become obsessed with excellence.

Ultimately, you will be measured and remembered. A commitment to excellence might just propel you to greatness as it did for the old coach.



What is one area of your leadership where you need to take it to another level in the coming months?
