The one quality that separates the good from the great.

There is an intangible quality that separates the good from the great.  A little something that I like to call heart. 

In all that you do, have heart. There will always be someone smarter, stronger, wiser, faster, richer… the list goes on, but if you’re in it with all your heart – that is greatness.

Martin Luther Kind Jr. said it best… “If a man is called to be a streetsweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music, or Shakespeare wrote poetry.  He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, here lived a great streetsweeper who did his job well.” 

In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, have heart.
