Do you give your very best at all times? The great American Olympic runner, Steve Prefontaine (1951-1975) said, "To give anything less than your best is to sacrifice the gift." Talent alone is not enough and it is a waste if you do not give your best all the time. Excuses and lack of accountability for actions has hurt many a talented professional in every field of endeavor. It is something to think about, are you one who is sacrificing the gift you have?
