To excel means to reach beyond the best you have ever given because doing so matters to you personally, for its own sake. It means to run your own race—as an individual, team, or organization. To excel is to know your greatest strengths and passions, and to emphasize them while honestly admitting and managing your weaknesses.
~ Robert Cooper Quotes from The Other 90%: How to Unlock Your Vast Untapped Potential for Leadership & Life
Emphasize strengths, don’t fix weaknesses.
~ Timothy Ferriss Quotes from The 4-Hour Workweek
