Dan Formosa's Excellence Diagram:



Excellence is around attributes of sustainability, resilience, social equity and mental wellbeing


If you're not failing, your not striving for success


Excellence requires an orchestration of many things coming together…intentionally and chance


We need to place more value on how we can support one another and create an excellent world rather than an excellent individual


It takes a lifetime to receive and recognise excellence


Excellence is more soulful…it resonates with the community


Excellence has gotten us to where we are at


Excellence is not necessarily for good
