Today, do your best. tomorrow, repeat.
“Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.” – Aristotle
Do what works. Make the best better. Champions keep playing until they get it right. You have to expect things of yourself before you can do them. A search for excellence sayings will turn up thousands of catchy and quippy phrases like these, geared toward helping our brain waves accomplish new things. In Western culture, however, the concept of “excellence” is all too often tinged with an attitude of competition and rivalry.
Grow Counseling’s third immutable law focuses on providing the best care possible in a way that is authentic and meaningful. Offering the best treatment options, workplace environment, programming, resources, and services we are able comes from doing the best we can, day in and day out. We believe firmly that if we can’t learn to do a particular service with excellence, then we shouldn’t be doing it. We’re not afraid to let go of options we aren’t able to do well or that aren’t a good fit for our culture. Unlike some mental health centers that focus on serving as many patients as possible, cycling through providers and operating a rotating door of clients, we want to know every person we serve is a good fit for what we offer. We want to make sure every client achieves positive, lasting results. If we can’t get you where you need to be, we will refer you to someone who can, or put in the time to learn more ourselves.
