When I was a little girl, my mother taught me the old saying, “Good, better, best. Never let it rest. ‘Til your good is better, and your better is best.”

I have no idea where mama learned this quote, but she was adamant that it became part of our DNA. With the power of my good search engine friend, Google, I discovered the phrase is attributed to St. Jerome, often called the Father of the Latin Bible. I can’t find the context for his saying, but I can attest to the power of his words.

We are good, we can get better, and if we are determined to grow in our personal and professional lives, we will never stop growing until we are our best. And then, what most of us discover, there is room to grow again!

Consciously looking for ways to improve does not deprive us of the joy of the moment. As a leader, it calls us not to a destination, but to a journey.
