Does Perfection Matter?

What's Your Impossible?
What's Your Impossible?

Lance Armstrong and the Tour de France. Is there anyone out there who doesn’t know what Lance Armstrong has done for bicycling, what he has done for Cancer patients, or what he has done for the pursuit of excellence, in anything, not just bicycling?

Walt Disney said, “Aim for perfection, settle for excellence”.

Two nights ago, leaving the Mall, this picture of Lance Armstrong was in a storefront window, Sunglass Hut, I think. Anyway, it captured a thought in my grey matter and I wondered if chasing perfection matters at all. Or does it only matter to the game-changers? Whaddaya think?

Disney Institute & Tour de France

Disney Institute & Tour de France.  Anything in common?

Yes.  What then?  Team work.

I watched some of the team time trial Tuesday.  Lance Armstrong’s team Astana, finished the 42 kilometer race first, by a fraction of a second.

It is quite common to think that Le Tour de France is an individual sport. The fact is, it’s a team sport, with each nine-man team trying to have one of their members be the overall Tour de France champion.

The Disney Institute is the most amazing team of individuals, all focused on winning, just like Lance Armstrong’s team.

There is one difference I’d like to point out though.  Disney Institute doesn’t win unless their Customers win.

Make it a great day, because if you don’t, who will?  Carpe diem, jungle jeff 🙂

Explaining the Impact of Twitter, Friendfeed and Social Media 2.0

Lance Armstrong, seven-time Tour de France winner and cancer survivor, used Twitter to announce the birth of his son yesterday.

Lance Armstrong gets it.  I get it.  Question is, “What about everyone else who’s focused on excellence”? Having said that, now may I challenge you to click the next link?

Explaining Social Media slide show.  It’s only 37 slides from Slide Share

This is one of the best, and most provocative insights to web 2.0

I ask myself at the end of everyday, “Did I give it my all, and leave nothing on the track“?
