“The secret of joy in work is contained in one word-excellence. To know how to do something well is to enjoy it.” Pearl S. Buck

Yes, Ms. Buck, I agree and I would dare to add that to achieve excellent one must practice the skills embodied in ones work and not fear failure. When failure happens, and it will, view our missteps, disconnects and even when we fall flat on our faces, as opportunities for learning. Through that process we discover our talents, build our resilience and increase our excellence.
