"Good, better, best. Never let it rest. Until your good is better and your better is best."
But, when asked what it would take to become the best, how easily do we come up with the specific verb statements that would actually move us closer to becoming the best mechanic, carpenter, electrician, teacher, principal? Verbs are known as action words for a reason. Not adjectives. Adjectives don't get things done.
Watch. Watch the people around you who have a reputation of being one of the best. Connect. Connect yourself to the best. They have been where you are and are usually willing to mentor others. Do. Do what they do. It's proven to work. Be. Become the best...
...one bolt, one nail, one wire, one student, or even one school at a time.
