What are the differences between mediocrity and excellence?
Before we dive into why Chillibreeze does not accept mediocrity but those who strive for excellence, we first need to understand the differences between mediocrity and excellence are.
The differences between mediocrity and excellence are effort and attention to detail.
To achieve a state of excellence in your craft, you need to have the heart to give that extra effort and pay attention to detail.
Remember you have a choice – You can try to do excellent work when asked or decide to live in such a way that everything you do comes out of excellence by default. This is not being obsessed with perfection but about doing everything with a conviction that says, ‘I respect myself enough to ensure that whatever I do is done with integrity and to a quality standard’.
For people who value excellence, perfection becomes like a habit and it shows in their work. They operate from an authentic position and have a high level of self-awareness. Irrespective of whose company they happen to be in or where they find themselves, they choose to maintain the same caliber of standards.
Unfortunately, what is shocking is that most people pull out the big guns only when there are certain people around when they have ulterior motives to get something else or to impress them. Or else, they tend to just maintain a mediocre stance, and worse still, other people seem to expect only mediocrity.
If you have a belief system of working with excellence does not just give self-fulfillment but also ascribes integrity to your name.
At the other end of excellence is mediocrity. Mediocrity can be a choice, just as excellence is a decision. Not deciding is a decision. If you are not thriving for excellence in the things you do, you are surely choosing to remain mediocre in your dealings.
If you do not believe that you should give your best to whatever you are doing, then you are losing not only time but also the opportunity to be excellent at doing something you love.
Chillibreeze and excellence...
Here at Chillibreeze, we do not accept mediocrity but those who strive for excellence. People who continuously set high expectations for themselves and for others are the ones with whom we always look forward to working with.
The reason why Chillibreeze strives for excellence is that this company was started to bring job opportunities to the educated youth of Northeast India – and it was grown organically – one customer at a time. Excellence in what we do and deliver to the customer was imperative and became embedded in our DNA. Read our story – how we started and how we decided to raise up local people and create a prosperous company. Not surprising that Chillibreeze is on a lifelong journey of growing more capable of adding value to its customers and unleashing the potential of the people it comes in touch with – like staff, vendors, service providers, etc. In fact, one of the guiding practices we believe in is, “We come to Chillibreeze not to do a job, but to create excellence.”
By Striving for Excellence, You Develop Yourself too
Skills that we develop can soon become obsolete. We must keep reinventing ourselves to adapt to the changing circumstances and be on a journey to make our own selves better in every aspect of our life. The journey of self-improvement is an ongoing process of constant learning. It gives you the ability to self-reflect on your strengths and weaknesses and work on them. Continuously develop yourself so that you can better serve your customers and colleagues.
In Chillibreeze, we need people who know what it takes to succeed. People who continuously challenge themselves out of their comfort zone and are ever ready to do whatever it takes to create opportunities to continue to add value to our customers, to our region and to everyone associated with the company. Do not worry. If you are ready for it there will be mentors who will guide you along the way
Chillibreeze Provides a Conducive Environment for Growth
We have a performance-oriented atmosphere that does not settle for mediocrity. We provide an environment where you can learn the skills to excel. That does not mean we do not make mistakes – it does happen, but we end up learning something from it and improving our skills and/or serving our customers better. We have a culture that encourages excellence and innovation that includes taking calculated risks.
Grab Your Chance to Become the Best
We all have the ability inside to be excellent at something we are passionate about. What you do not use, will waste away. Do not throw away your chance to become the best at your craft by settling for a mediocre life.
The willpower to take the extra step is what would set you apart. That willpower comes from your level of GRIT. Individuals who have achieved high status have this knowledge to become people of excellence.
Have you trained yourself to challenge yourself to go through obstacles to persevere and persist through pressure? This is how you keep growing in stamina to be able to do what others could back away or draw back from. Where you are now is where you can start. Take on those challenges you have given up on or the ones you have either postponed out of inner fear. The most effective way to develop persistence and perseverance is not by running away but by going through it.
Remember, your work reflects how much you respect the recipients and how you see yourself. Make it your goal to always thrive from a position of excellence.
It is often said that successful people and the best leaders always have a strong personal conviction of how they should function. It is no surprise then, why excellence is one of the values in Chillibreeze.
Do not just see where you are now but see what you could become too!
