I don’t want good. I want your best.

I recently watched an interview with John Sculley who was telling a story about an incident that happened while he was working at Apple. A sleep deprived software engineer who had been working tirelessly on a project came up to Steve Jobs and said, “I think I’ve completed the project.” Steve asked him, “Is it your best?” He said, “No, but it’s pretty good.” Steve told him, “I don’t want good. I want your best. Get back to work. When you bring me your best, I will look at it.”

Are you settling for pretty good or are you giving your best to every project?
