I would like to share this inspirational short story on Excellence.
Once a man visited a temple under construction where he saw a sculptor making an idol of God. Suddenly he saw a similar idol lying nearby. Surprised, he asked the sculptor, "Do you need two statues of the same idol?" "No" said the sculptor without looking up, "We need only one, but the first one got damaged at the last stage". The gentleman examined the idol but did not find any apparent damage. "Where is the damage?" he asked. "There is a scratch on the nose of the idol", said the sculptor still busy with his work. "Where are you going to install the idol?" The sculptor replied that it would be installed on a pillar 20 feet high. "If the idol is that far up who is going to know that there is a scratch on the nose?" the gentleman asked. The sculptor stopped his work, looked up at the gentleman, smiled and said, "I will know it!".
The desire to excel is exclusive of the fact whether someone appreciates it or not. Excellence is a drive from the inside, not outside. And at MPT South, we continuously strive excelling in elevating our customer’s experience. Excellence for us means setting high standards of performance for our self and others by constantly challenging the status quo. Thus, when someone notices an excellent work, whether a service or product, it is just a byproduct of our inner desire to excel and not the end goal itself.
