Excellence

The next word in the 100 day challenge is EXCELLENCE.

In baseball, a ‘perfect game’ is when your pitcher and team face only the minimum number of batters — 27. You allow no runs and no hits. No one on the opposing team reaches base. It is called a perfect game, but it should be called an excellent game. There is no perfect. If the pitcher threw a perfect game, every pitch would be a strike. He would not even throw one pitch out of the strike zone. I won’t say never, but that will probably never happen.

Just because you cannot always be excellent does not mean you should not try. Striving for excellence is always a worthy goal.
