The Importance of Excellence

When Jessa was a kid, her mom trained their bed as soon as they got up. Their mother didn’t care if they had maids to fix their rooms. Because she didn’t particularly like doing that chore, there would be days when she would do a sloppy job.

Her mom would scold her and make her fix the bed again. “It takes the same effort to do it correctly or sloppily,” her mother would say. “You’re doing it anyway so do it right the first time. Now you have to do it twice!”

That taught her the importance of excellence and giving her best in whatever she did.
