Everything we do is a reflection of who we are and what we worship.
If God gave us his best in Jesus, shouldn’t we desire to give our best back to him, even through our work?
Excellence is defined as: “the quality of being outstanding or extremely good.” Whether you flip burgers, mop floors, work as an executive at a Fortune 500 company, or serve on the hospitality team at your local church, do it with excellence.
Like a talented tattoo artist, imprint your ”divine design” with such high quality at your workplace that God will be glorified.
I want to share five characteristics of excellence that helped me become an NFL player and that now infuse me with strength as a pastor and leader. People who are excellent at their jobs frequently share these qualities:
1. They are passionate about what they do.
It’s impossible to be remarkable at your job if you’re not passionate about what you’re doing. Passion is a dynamic quality that adds flavor and life to a task.
Passion doesn’t allow you to do anything subpar. It compels you to put your best foot forward, even when no one is looking.
Are you passionate about what you’re doing? If not, how can you increase your passion?
2. They are learners.
If you don’t know what you’re doing, it’s next to impossible for you to be excellent at your job. I was a better NFL player in my fifth year than in my first year because I studied the details and nuances of the game. This knowledge translated into better performance.
Are you learning the details of your job? Are you putting in the extra effort to be exceptional at what you do?
