What does excellence means? I checked some source in the internet, and the first result that I got was, “The state, quality, or condition of excelling; superiority” When I check the meaning of excellent, I got as the first result “Of the highest or finest quality; exceptionally good of its kind”. So if somebody is an excellent guy, it would mean that he’s of the highest or finest quality, and he’s exceptionally good of its kind.
A turkey was chatting with a bull. “I would love to be able to get to the top of that tree,” sighed the turkey, “but I haven’t got the energy.” “Well, why don’t you nibble on some of my droppings?” replied the bull. “They’re packed with nutrients.” The turkey pecked at a lump of dung and found that it actually gave him enough strength to reach the lowest branch of the tree.
I have a friend who asked me to teach him Java programming. About a few days ago, he told me : Programmers should work fast and efficient. Please give me a task which has a time limit. I’m not used to fast programming. The part about fast and efficient is always universally true. It doesn’t apply to only programming, but I am more in the direction of doing something right instead of fast.
