Desire for excellence



A gentleman once visited a temple under construction
where he saw a sculptor making an idol of God.
Suddenly he noticed a similar idol lying nearby.
Surprised, he asked the sculptor,
"Do you need two statues of the same idol?"
"No," said the sculptor without looking up, "We need
only one, but the first one got damaged at the last stage." The gentleman examined the idol and found no apparent damage.
"Where is the damage?"
he asked."There is a scratch on the nose of the
idol." said the sculptor, still busy with his work. "Where are you going to install the idol?"
The sculptor replied that it would be installed on a pillar twenty feet high.
"If the idol is that far,
who is going to know that there is a scratch on the nose?
" the gentleman asked",
The sculptor stopped his work, looked up at the gentleman,
smiled and said, "I know it and God knows it!"

The desire to excel should be exclusive of the
fact whether someone appreciates it or not.
"Excellence" is a drive from inside, not outside.
Excel at a task today - not necessarily for
someone else to notice but for your own satisfaction!!
One can never escape from conscience..
