Killing Cockroaches and Comfortable Mediocrity

Yesterday I received a copy of Killing Cockroaches in the mail. I’ve enjoyed following Tony Morgan’s blogs and tweets and I’ve been really looking forward to the book.

Great thought on page 11:

…we learned a long time ago that to try to make everyone happy, you have to be comfortable with mediocrity. It’s a place where there are few critics. It’s also a place where few people become really passionate…

Too often I allow complaint management to keep me trapped in mediocrity. Living with passion will always bring criticism. But it sure beats living in comfortable mediocrity.
