Incredible Quote on Excellence

Came across this a couple months back. I love how it emphasizes studying and learning from the best of the best and not getting sucked into what the masses are doing. Who are the best in what they do and what can we learn from them to produce a similar result.

“It seemed to me that they (educational system) were teaching mediocrity and people were using a statistical approach. Rather than take someone of excellence and study the pattern, the adventures of this person they took someone who is extraordinarily extroverted and operated in the world or someone who was extraordinarily introverted and they did the statistical analysis and came up with the middle. The middle is exactly what I am not interested in” – John Grinder
