“In any endeavor you can only be five things, you can bad, you can average, you can be good, you can be excellent, or you can be elite, and I prefer a life that balances somewhere between excellent and elite. You can measure excellence, you can quantify it, you can reach certain milestones, hit a certain speed; elite is kind of this mythical camelot that is just that next ridge line.”
