An Extrospective Journal.

“Excellence” is a drive from inside not outside.

“Excellence” is a drive from inside not outside.

A German once visited a temple
under construction where he
saw a sculptor making an idol of
God.

Suddenly he noticed a
similar idol lying nearby.
Surprised, he asked the sculptor, “Do you need two statues of the
same idol?” “No,” said the
sculptor without looking up, “We…
need only one, but the first
one got damaged at the last
stage.”

The gentleman examined the idol and found no apparent
damage. “Where is the damage?”
he asked. “There is a scratch on
the nose of the idol.” said the
sculptor, still busy with his work.
“Where are you going to install the idol?” The sculptor replied that it would
be installed on a pillar twenty
feet high. “If the idol is that far,
who is going to know that there
is a scratch on the nose?” the
gentleman asked.

The sculptor stopped work, looked up at the
gentleman, smiled and said, “I
will know it.”

The desire to excel is exclusive of
the fact whether someone else
appreciates it or not. “Excellence”
is a drive from inside, not outside.18MA_SCULMDU_1117491g

Excellence is not for
someone else to notice but for your own satisfaction and
efficiency…
