Good Enough Is Not Good Enough: Demanding More of Yourself and Your Service
Vince Lombardi said that, “The quality of a person’s life is in direct proportion to their commitment to excellence.” In our work, the quality of the lives of others is also in direct proportion to our commitment to excellence. So if we have all agreed to work in the service of others in their time of need, why do some people in emergency services only go as far as “good enough”? How do people slide from doing what’s right, to doing what’s “good enough” and how do we reconnect them to a commitment to excellence? Inspiring and informative, Rom Duckworth shows how easy it can be for organizations and individuals to stray from the path of excellence and reminds us of the importance of what we do and why, in our unique profession, good enough is simply not good enough.
