Mediocrity vrs Average

I believe it to be ok to accept and even celebrate, average.  Average is a good thing and represents those of us who plod along doing the best we know how to do.

I am really getting frustrated with the concept of mediocrity.  I think it is a virus.  It settles for “good enough.”  It means that you don’t work to potential.  Mediocrity settles for the lowest common denominator.  The virus of mediocirty can pervade a culture and it can begin to make institutions celebrate high levels of mediocrity as excellence.

I believe in stirving for the highest point possible.  If average is the highest point for a given person; then GREAT!!!  The person is working up to their potential. 

Strive for excellence!
