Aim for the stars: When people are encouraged to reach beyond their grasp, the results can be eye-opening. Successful leaders don’t buy into perceived limitations. Insist on excellence: The importance of setting high standards cannot be overestimated. And this can’t be a part-time preoccupation. The closer you are to the goal line, the more perfect you must be: Perfection matters most when the pressure is greatest—in those situations that can change the direction of an organization. At these moments, in particular, aiming for perfection pays dividends.
