Today is a big day in the Johnson household as our son prepares to graduate from pre-school this afternoon. He will start kindergarten in September, and he and his sister will finally attend the same school together again. My husband and I are planning summer activities designed to continue to prepare him for success in elementary school.
One of the things we are starting with is memorization of his elementary school pledge. It's short, sweet and a good reminder for small business owners and everyone in general about our responsibility as leaders to pursue excellence to the best of our ability at all times. Here it is.
As a student, I pledge to:
- Make good choices and be responsible for my own actions.
- Use manners, kind words, and actions to show respect for others and myself.
- Arrive on time daily with a positive attitude, take acre of my materials, follow directions, and be eager to explore learning opportunities.
- I expect excellence as I soar to new heights and discover success!
Question: I am inspired by how truly simple it is to pursue excellence. What do you think?
