I thought about the word ‘standards’ the other day, and I liked it.
It brought to mind a level or a benchmark below which a certain thing did not go. There are ‘standards’ for acceptable behavior and professional performance.
Excellence, innovation, and creativity know no bounds, of course. But standards hold fast, day after comforting day.
So we keep them up. We hold to them. We may raise them, but we must always maintain them.
I’d love to hear the personal standards that you hold dear. To what aspect of your life do you most consistently and most strongly apply ‘standards’?
Feel free to share.
