Turning down an $8,000 offer when your price is $12,000.
Forcing your team to work on something that’s good when you demand that it be great.
Not being happy with beating everyone else when the standard is being your best, regardless of whoever else is around.

The harder it will be to find those people.
The more people — good, quality-but-not-quite-what-you-need-people — you will be turning away.
The longer you’ll go between identifying those right people.
This can all start to be a headache, especially when you’re watching would-be “opportunity” consistently walk away from you.
Which is why most people don’t raise their standards above a certain level.
They keep standards at an “acceptable” level — not low, but not high either.
They never get to their perfect people, but they have a circle full of above-average people.
They settle for good enough.
All out of fear — they may call it something else, but it’s fear nonetheless — of aiming too high, missing and being left with nothing.
High standards are not a secret. There’s no hidden formula for having and maintaining them. This is not to say that it’s easy, but the how-to isn’t hard to find.
The hard part is setting them, upholding them, and sleeping at night when you know you could’ve left good-enough alone.
