Working Toward Excellence identifies eight values for achieving excellence in work and life including hunger, effort, process, quality, consistency, leadership, time, and perseverance. The goal of this book is to add value to others by helping them work toward excellence in any endeavor. What makes Working Toward Excellence unique and appealing is its focus on excellence, a topic sorely lacking in the marketplace. Working Toward Excellence is small, an easy read, and useful because it contains questions for reflection, lessons, and quotes that can be referred to for inspiration and evaluation. Without question, there is a great need for Working Toward Excellence today. Wynton Marsalis said, "Maybe the preoccupation with technological progress has overshadowed our concern with human progress." This book, at its essence, is about human progress and developing the values that lead to excellence.
