Reflection on Life

Writing about web page MBE, Life, continuos improvement, CBE, purpose

The Creating Business Excellence module ended today but the lessons learned during this module has challenged every management principle I was taught during my undergrad. I can guarantee that this is not an exaggeration.

One thing that recurring in my head was that the excellence models are not just for businesses or orgainzation. It can and maybe should be adopted to a way of life. This thought has actually consumed me over the past few days. I am realizing that no journey I embark upon will ever be complete because there will be something I could improve. This is initially a very scary thought. But after a long consideration of the idea, I think it might be the best way to view life. Living a life where you know you will never reach the best of anything gives you a sense of purpose. This may sound contradictory in the sense that if there is no end goal, what is the purpose? But the way I see it if you can always improve everything you do in your life you always have something to live for. And feel fulfilled when you make little achievements every step of the way.
