Tom Peters-The 19 Es of Excellence from What Matters Most

Seth Godin asked 70 writers the question “What Matters Most?” and he put a compendium together with these one page essays. And he put it in a free ebook.

I have chosen my favorite author pages and will sharing them with you. You can download the entire FREE ebook here.

Here is an excerpt from Tom Peters’ contribution located on page 20 of the book.

Excuberance …Vibrate—cause earthquakes

Execution…Do it! Now! Get it done!
Barriers are baloney! Excuses are for wimps! Accountability is gospel! Adhere to the Bill Parcells doctrine “Blame no one! Expect nothing! Do something!

Eudaimonia…Pursue the highest of human moral purpose–the core of Aristotle’s philosophy. Be of service.

If not EXCELLENCE, then what?
