“Only the mediocre are always at their best” – Jean Giraudoux
Mediocrity is dangerous. It goes beyond fooling yourself. When I hear stories of a kids pastor not giving it their all I do not necessarily think of the mediocre kids pastor. Instead, I think about the children who are being affected. I think about the poor experience they are having, the lack of passion and lack of commitment to raising up the next generation.
Mediocre people think they’re always as their best. They often cannot find much room for improvement or do not push themselves forward. If I ever find myself thinking that there’s nothing else I can do, I question my motivation and do a quick mediocrity check. I think there’s always room to do even better if not for my sake, for the kids and volunteers I lead.
Help fight mediocrity by:
1. Don’t settle.
2. Always pay attention to the details.
As always…What say you?
