The Pursuit of Excellence

Okay, yes, once again I am in a plane . . . reading.

Tom Peters states in The Little BIG Things that "organizations should be no less than cathedrals in which the full and awesome power of the imagination and spirit and native entrepreneurial flair of diverse individuals is unleashed in passionate pursuit of [. . .] excellence."

I agree. I just wish agreement alone got you there! It takes everyone sitting in the cathedral to adopt that vision to make it work. But if we start by inspiring one staff person at a time in our association — it could be done.

I also felt I might take license to reword his statement for the camp community, as well:

“The CAMP EXPERIENCE should be no less than a SANCTUARY OF NATURE in which the full and awesome power of the imagination and spirit and native entrepreneurial flair of diverse CAMPERS is unleashed in passionate pursuit of [. . .] excellence!”
