Being specific and my view on mediocrity

Being specific and my view on mediocrity

WD Do it wellIf there is one thing that I despise, its mediocrity – both in other people and in myself.

The things in my past which I regret the most, were things I did without really being passionate about doing, which led to a mediocre attempt at best.

WD Get back up

The thing that gets me the most irritated with people in all aspects of daily life is mediocrity – the mediocre attitude towards customer service, the mediocre attitude towards doing your job, the mediocre attitude of relationships (both platonic friendships and more romantic ones).

In my quest to find my dream job, I refuse to be mediocre!   I am specific about which jobs I apply for, not because I think I am better than anyone else, or discriminate against people who are willing to do certain jobs, but because I only apply for jobs that I know I will not be mediocre at.  I apply for positions which I know I can do (and do well), ones I will be good at, ones that I have a real interest in, and ones that I know I will always do my best.  That does not mean I know the in’s and out’s of every specific job, but I know something about it, and can learn the rest.

TalentWD do the impossible

It’s a choice, after all, to do your best, to set your personal standards, and to not be mediocre.
