"I think excellence is being able to perform at a higher level over and over again. You can hit a half court shot once. That’s just the luck of the draw. If you can consistently do it through eleven championships like Bill Russell, then that’s excellence." - Jay Z
It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all - in which case, you fail by default.
